Eagle in action

February 20, 2013


Jim Flowerree, a 46-year-old Somervell County resident, contributed this photo of a bald eagle that he took on Dec. 29 between Granbury and Glen Rose during a 20-mile kayak trip on the Brazos River. Flowerree, a 20-year Army veteran, made the trip with four others he had served with as Army Calvary Scouts. The trip began south of the deCordova dam and ended in Somervell County. Flowerree said the eagle – one of four spotted that day, including one possible golden eagle – swooped down to the water in front of them, snagged a fish and carried it to the tree. “We were just in shock,” Flowerree said. “It was like something on National Geographic. It was profound.”
