Hi Tom,great timing and great result,the pose is really original and beautiful,spectacular wings details in a correct exposure and beautiful reflections too.I wish you all the best for the new year and thanks for share,Luciano

Very interesting picture. I enjoy seeing pictures of birds and other creatures that, like this one, demonstrate their behavior.

Hi Tom
I would have guessed that he had caught something. I guess to him water is water, the fact that it is dirty doesn't matter to him. This pose was a great capture
showing all the detail of his out stretched wings. I like your low POV and the the DOF has the complete bird in focus. Great photo.
Happy New Year and all the best in the future
Thanks for sharing

Hello Tom

Hallo Tom
Your series of images you posted lately are all so true and part of nature and one cannot find better than the real and actual, action shot just as you once again have here. This is great photography sharing all your "real live actions" with us. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Tom
Impressive scene and impressive photo with wonderful lighting and very good sharpness!
My best wishes for the New Year!

Hello Tom,

Fantastic capture ! This species is very spectacular, not so common, and to catch a juvenile is even more exciting.
As almost always, the technique is perfect : timing, framing, sharpness are at the top.
The light was quite cold and without contrast, but it's finally lucky because you could keep good details in white feathers. Congratulations (once again!)

Hi Tom,
A real beauty!! Perfect plumage detail except for the white area (left side). Excellent sharpness and eye detail. Great timing and low POV my friend.
Best regards,

Dear Tom,
Tanzania has really been good to you! No wonder you keep going there :-)

I have not seen before a Martial Eagle bathing. ( much better than using a serviette :-)

"Taking a bath after a meal", your note seduced and gave me an excuse to add your work to my group "animals feeding".

Total perfection in very way is making your work an absolute pleasure to view.

Thanks or sharing, greetings from South Africa, Ingrid
