Claudia Ross at Rose Hill Farm, on U.S. 211 not far from the town of Washington, took this telephoto shot on Wednesday (Jan. 4) of a bald eagle checking out the meadow nearby. Ross said the bird was “easily three feet tall” and, when she tried to get closer, “he vanished in such a flash that I wasn’t even able to get him flying away.”
