[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
Imperial Eagle (Aquilua heliaca) can be found throughout southern Europe, from Greece to southern Russia. Here it can be found as far south as a line drawn from Cyprus to northwest India, and as far east as Central Siberia. It can also be found sparsely in Spain. In winter it migrates to northeast Africa (from Egypt to Kenya), India, and southeast China (Channing 2000).

Hello Robi,
Excellent in-flight capture of the Imperial Eagle. This is sharp and well-presented.
By the way, the Spanish Imperial Eagle is a separate species and is endangered.
TFS, regards, Ivan

I like the sharpness of the head and the motion blur of the wings. Very nice capture.

Bonjour Robi,
Alors là... je dis Chapeau bas!
J'aime beaucoup les rapaces.
Je vais profiter de la migration des rapaces de l'est qui viennent passer l'hivers en Alsace pour essayer de les prendre en photo. Si seulement je pouvais arriver à faire une photo comme la votre...
Vous l'aurez compris: j'aime beaucoup cette photo. La composition est sublime! Les deux diagonales en plein vole. L'exposition parfaite et la vitesse très bien adaptée au mouvement. Toute mes félicitations.
