A beautiful bird and an excellent capture.
Lovely detail and colours.
Very well done.
Otro gran retrato de un ave maravillosa.
Excelente manejo de la iluminación permite ver con muy buena agudeza los detalles de su plumaje y cabeza.
Correcto encuadre y DOF.
Creo que si no fuese por el pequeño reflejo en su ojo, podría ver tu rostro perfectamente reflejado... otra vez será :)
Another great portrait of a wonderful bird.
Excellent handling of the lighting allows to see with very good sharpness the details of its plumage and head.
Correct frame and DOF.
I believe that if not be by the small reflection in its eye, could see your face perfectly reflected... perhaps in the next one.

Great shot Japie! Wish I could zoom in on that eye to see the contents of the reflection seen.. Excellent BG effect & superb details combined with a very nice blend of light & shadows. A great capture!

JHapie, you are a master. Very nice capture. The vwhole picture gives off the aggressiveness of the specimen. Well Done
Good eye sharpness and detail around the head. Small thing, but I would have cloned out the dust spot above his head!

It's a lovely shot. I love raptors. This one has a stern look in it's face. Excellent work, Japie.
I am aslo confused with the ID but, I think I'll settle for Verreaux’s Eagle (Aquila verreauxii). Witkruis Arend. I did a post here.
The golden eagle is here.

Perhaps that I should move in South Africa. So many ones and beautiful subjects on your premise. Like this one, for example. Very good work, Japie. Very neat. Thank you.

Verreaux’s Eagle. Golden is found in Africa, NW. A brown eagle, with a more rounded nostril, not as slotted like our VE witkruis.
Gape also extends to just the pupil, as in VE, it stops in the middle of the eye. I checked Gerhard link, and concur.
Anyway, lucky dog, this is a beaut, Love it! And I must say, I have never seen such a hook on one of them.
I note your CCD has dust on it.

Japie, I did enjoy Goldie. You did an excellent job. How far were you from the bird?
Great composition and point of view.
