Bald Eagle on the Fourth

For a family heavily invovled with the United States military, this sight on Thursday, the Fourth of July no less, had to seem quite fitting as an American bald eagle is captured with wings spread as it launches from the roof of a house. The house is that of retired United States Army Col. Jerry Penner of Murray and the image was taken by his wife, Jamie. There seems to be one small difficulty to having such a majestic creature as a guest, though, as Jerry said the bird has taken to plucking several large catfish from a pond on the property.
