“Ahhh, that sun feels so good!”

I photographed this Bald Eagle high up in the perch tree at the Ridgefield NWR today (Mar. 7, 2014) for about 45 minutes.  It was preening, stretching, and scratching.  Here the bird looks almost asleep but several times it would make a circular motion with its head stretching all the way to its back.  Interesting from a behavioral standpoint anyway.   Canon 5D Mark III, 1/1600, f7.1, ISO 640, 700mm.
