Jeff & Michelle Cobble are a photography duo / couple based out of St. Petersburg, Florida. The Cobbles primarily photograph nature – both landscapes and animals – but also dabble in architectural photography. While the Cobbles are one of the few non-Midwestern artists, their portrait of this bathing eagle encapsulates the unexpected beauty of the Mississippi.  They dubbed this specific eagle Phyllis after famed female comedienne Phyllis Diller. Diller was one of the first celebrities to publicize and champion plastic surgery, and paved the way for females in stand-up comedy.  This bathing eagle took a few beauty tips from Diller – just look at that hair!

Fun Fact: The Mississippi River is home to thousands of bald eagles. Just across the river from The Current – in Rock Island – there are miles of dedicated land for winter habitats for bald eagles. Check out the RI Lock & Dam 15 eagle watching events – most eagles can be seen here from mid-December through March!
