[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The african Black-chested Snake Eagle is a close relative to the Eurasian Short-toed Eagle and as its cousin mainly preying on snakes and other reptiles. The adults are boldly marked beautifull raptors. This one came close to our camping site, had a quick look at the camera and went away.

I think I like this fellow in this original version rather than with the artificial sky...but can't really say why. I do like this shot and that slight tilt to the head as he is checking you out. It is really sharp. What lens were you using?
