Martial Eagle (Polemaetus bellicosus)

This is my second picture of the Martial Eagle; same spot; just POV bit different. The first picture of this species I posted when it was looking at me. But here you could see this beautiful birds side view.

I had captured this picture during our 20 days staying in Kruger National Park.

African largest Eagle.

Hello Srikumar,
Another great shot of the Martial Eagle in an aggressive looking pose. Wonderful details and lovely well defined markings. I like the way it's feathers are fluffed up making it appear much larger then it actually is.

Very nice image with excellent details and colors.
A wonderful bird. Splendid capture.
