Nice shot, Tom. I see a tiny bit of haze under the wings. You could probably have benefited from an UV Haze filter!

A great view of a "big bird". The haze mentioned by Tullio could probably be reduced by boosting the contrast and saturation just a bit in your editor.

I should have done that for the posted picture, but for my computer wallpaper version, I wanted to see the detail on the bird's belly. I boosted the gamma because the bright sky made the belly very dark, and the lack of contrast there really shows now.
