Bald Eagle Head On Photo

A lucky portrait of a bald eagle in all its majesty. Those powerful eyes are good for more than just giving humans death glares. This eagle has such good eyesight it can see fish moving underwater from over 100 feet in the air.

Bald eagles have two eyelids: an opaque one they close when asleep, and a transparent one they use to blink while awake. Like a windshield wiper, it clears away grit so the eagle never has to break eye contact.

Bald eagles always win staring contests.
