Thanks, Stephanie.

That shot of the Golden Eagle was in a treetop at Portland Avenue and Highway 512. I shot it on the fly as we passed by on the overpass...I couldn't tell what the bird was until I downloaded and enlarged the image, then cropped it to just include the bird and the treetop. I could see though it was a large bird with the way the treetop was bending under its weight. I've never seen a Golden Eagle before, so it was just a stroke of luck. The other shot of the brambles was just from our own backyard.
