Was at my buddies ranch in Junction, a few weekends back and they have a pair of eagles that nest there from october to May. My camera was about dead, but I was able to capture this photo right before it died. The bird took off from its perch right when I snapped this photo and my camera died right after I took this pic, wish I would have had more camera, battery as it swooped down and grabbed a large bass outta the river not 40 yards in front of us. Was not actually aware of what the photo turned out until a few days later when I was able to plug it into my computer, wish I had a program to clean it up, but just dont have one, if any of ya'll would like feel free to clean it up...

I can't remember the exact road, but I believe it is, it is off the road that runs beside the Llano River. His family actually owns the headwaters of the Llano.

Yup i think that's it, pass it every year. Seen them in flight but never took a photo. It'd be on the left if headed to Menard from Georgetown...never can remember the spot til I see the river

It could be a different pair, but definitely could be the same, these roost a couple miles of the highway, but no further than 2 miles off of it.
