Shaking it off
Above is a photo taken at the Memphis Zoo which houses Bald Eagles that have been too badly injured to be returned to the wild. Photographer Michael Pachis reports that the eagles usually perch in their tree and watch the visitors. The eagle pictured here however, has just finished dunking his entire head in the aviary water pool. It looks refreshed and wet, but there is no mistaking the bold presentation of its inborn magnificence in this perfect picture.
