E Pluribus Unum, or "Out of many, one"

The theme this week by Christine  is "E Plribus Unum". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that.

I thought about how to share this theme. It is a patriotic theme and what better to use then our national bird. The American Eagle gave me a fun pose.  It was one of many in the enclosure.
There were more in the enclosure along with the American flag.
Here are three in the show.
I had considered a Pink Flamingo which was one of many.
There were a many birds in this pond.
I think they are a showy bird,
See what the others show on my sidebar.

I have wanted to brave the elements to get some eagle shots each winter, so I think it's neat that you got to get so close to my favorite bird. The flamingos are a feast for the eyes, too!

Tom, nice! I wasn't sure anyone would do a patriotic theme, but this fit the bill nicely. At first I thought you found a bald eagle in the wild!!

Indeed, the eagle is a great choice for this theme! I also love the color swirls in your last shot.

You have much fun with this, don't you?
I love the eagle. We've had a pair here. Lots of ospreys, too.
No flamingoes, though!
