Hi Nadia - possibly Wahlberg Eagle but I'd have to check a book to be sure. Certainly seem to be one of the smaller Aquilla eagles.

In my experience eagles in this sort of situation often look around them so I'm sure if yo could have waited a few minutes you could have got them looking at each other or towards you.

Regards Phil

Baie mooi. Nice shot.

Good composition. It is not to central and you can only really look at the birds.

Nice exposure. The birds are a tad small in the format and that leads to detail loss.

Well done and TFS
