[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another nice impression from the Chobe NP, an Eagle captured during a the boat trip. I think teh bird is a little bit to centered, but it was not easy to take these pictures from a small boat with 300m focus.

Sorry I'm not an expert, so I don't know which kind of eagle it is.

Eagles are large birds of prey which are members of the bird family Accipitridae, and belong to several genera which are not necessarily closely related to each other. Most of the more than 60 species occur in Eurasia and Africa.[1] Outside this area, just two species (the Bald and Golden Eagles) can be found in the USA and Canada, nine more in Central and South America, and three in Australia.

Hello Achim ,
A nice capture of the African Fish Eagle taken in its natural environment. At this distance and POV the composition is not too centred at all. It's a fine composition taken in good lighting.
Thanks and best regards,

Hi Achim,

TFS and cheers,

Lieber Achim,
War 3 Tage abwesend und sehe, dass Du sehr aktiv warst!
Sehr idyllisches Bild dieser natürlichen Landschaft. Hier scheint Fauna und Flora noch im Einklang zu leben. Schön strukturiertes Bild mit den verschiedenen Ebenen, Wasser, Gräser, Bäume. Sehr feines Bild.
Herzliche Grüsse
