Having a bath is so much fun

I think this majestic Bald Eagle almost looks rather annoyed that I've taken its photo while it was taking a bath in a very tiny stream that runs through its enclosure, ha. Not the best photo of it, with the messy background, but it doesn't often happen when I visit the Calgary Zoo, that one of the three Bald Eagles is down on the ground and reasonably close to the wire fence. It was a beautiful day yesterday, but the sun was so horribly harsh on everything. I'm lucky enough to see Bald Eagles in the wild here in the city, but can never get a close shot of them.
