This bird of prey was photographed in east-central Minnesota during a weekend drive in the country.
Nancy Harder and her husband headed out on a drive through the Minnesota countryside on Saturday, Feb. 4. On this particular morning, there was a light fog and hoarfrost blanketed the trees and ground.
"My husband saw the eagle up in a tree, pulled over the car and asked me if I had my camera ready with the long lens and if I thought I could sneak out of the car and get the shot," Harder told TODAY.com. "I squeezed out of the door and used the car roof to stabilize my camera. I got off a few shots with him sitting still; just then he took off and I managed to get off two more shots."
