Solo Bald Eagle

This is one of the best photos I have of a solo Bald Eagle.  The background was just perfect.  I also like the way the plumage is gently flying in the air.  Its beak is perfect for what he needs to do.  The eye is piercing.  Love this photo and the detail.

Did you know that both sexes of bald eagles have the same colouring for plumage?  The difference is that the female is actually a bit larger.  Eagles have excellent eyesight.  “They have two foveae or centers of focus, that allow the birds to see both forward and to the side at the same time.”
