Default Strange Looking Fermentation

BLUF - The top 25% of the beer in my secondary fermenter is much clearer than the bottom 75% which appears to be pretty cloudy.

I just racked from my 6.5 gallon primary to my 5 gallon secondary about 14 hours ago. I have good sanitation practices so I'm doubtful that I contaminated anything. In the past, I paid no mind to my secondary fermenters until it was around bottling time so this may be completely normal. It just looks weird. Any ideas?

It's just the yeast settling to the bottom. Perfectly normal.
