On our recent visit to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park we came across this pair of pale chanting goshawks who posed for us for quite a while.
The Park is really a spectacular place to visit with amongst other things wonderful birdlife!

Hi Peter,
What a wonderful pair of Raptors. The great pose and light really showcases the birds well. Bye the way, happy belated birthday, my computer kept crashing so I couldn't send a critique on the your last posting. Have a fine day.
