Stop the Presses, Amazing News

I have to interrupt the regularly scheduled quilt blog to share an amazing thing I saw on my walk today. A bald eagle! It was standing in the field, right next to the road! (Eating carrion, but that’s okay) It lifted its head,  looked at me and my dog, Sandy, and went right back to eating. Cars went by and I pointed to share the cool event. Some slowed to take photos. I took this picture:

In the photo it looks far away, but really it was very close.
