Today's pics are not going to convince her differently!
No, that's not been cropped in from the original! We were driving home and there was a bald eagle chowing down on some road kill right on the shoulder of the road. So I made hellbob turn the car around. He flew off as we got close but ended up landing in a tree right by the edge of the road so we pulled up slowly and I shot these pics from the window of the car.
This pic is cropped, but only on the sides to turn it from a horzontal to a vertical.
Birds eventually get tired of posing for me!
