Riding the thermals

This hasn’t been the best year for Bald Eagles here in the St. Louis region but we do have some around. Today was a very warm day and there were lots of thermals along the Mississippi River between Alton and Grafton. We spotted six of them and I was able to get a few shots. This one was just soaring around on the currents looking majestic and beautiful.
