Delightful Close Encounter

Jordan Lake: it had been a frustrating morning for my friend Bill and I. Fog and more fog everywhere. As the morning air started to clear up, a few birds started to appear and then out of the corner of my eye I saw this four-year-old bald eagle fly in around the corner, land on a limb about 100 feet from us, and it started to eat its catfish. Neither Bill nor I breathed. We leaned as far around as we could without moving from our places and began photographing this beautiful bald eagle. According to the timestamp on my camera, the eagle stayed with us for right at two minutes. Then, off it went taking its fish and Bill and I breathed again.
