Default Bald Eagle in Setting Sun

We had a small break in the rain so I headed off to the refuge to see what I could see. There were lots of geese resting in the ponds and I also came across this Bald Eagle. I was shooting away in questionable light because the clouds were pretty thick. Then, for just a few minutes the sun broke between the clouds and I had my opportunity. This Eagle sat in this tree for all of the 45minutes I was shooting. Very nice of him I thought.

Thank you, the colors are a little richer in 1 and 4. The light was really changing fast with all the clouds. I was just happy he stayed for so long.
Cheers,
