The African Fish Eagle(Haliaeetus vocifer) is a large species of Eagle that is found throughout Sub-Saharan Africa wherever large bodies of open water occur that have an abundant food supply.

IT IS THE NATIONAL BIRD OF ZIMBABWE,ZAMBIA AND SOUTH SUDAN.

Like all sea Eagle species pairs,this one consists of a white-headed one.These are an ancient lineage of sea Eagle,and as such have dark talons,beaks,and eyes.

SCIENTIFIC CLASSIFICATION:

Family:Accipitridae
Genus:Haliaeetus

The African Fish Eagle is a large bird,and the female at 3.2-3.6 Kg is larger than the male at 2-2.5 Kg.The African Fish Eagle is absent from arid areas with little surface water.

Hello Srikumar!
A very good shot of this beautiful bird of prey against the blue sky. Sharpness and details are not ideal probably because of large distance involved between your subject and camera's lens. Moreover sunlight direction wasn't in your favor. Wish you a desired shot next time.Thanks for sharing,
Best Regards,
AKBAR

Hello Srikumar,
I am impressed by the magnificent sharpness and details of this image. The composition is wonderful. Very nice colors and outstanding clarity. It is a superb photo with amazing clarity. Lovely contrast against the background.

Srikumar,
Cannot agree with Akbar-Ali-Asif; nature does not "pose" for us. We have to do the best we can and that's all.
This is a HIGHLY IMPRESSIVE image.
The details, colours and B/G are 10/10. GREAT NOTES TOO.
Best and most kind regards,
Mario.
P.S. Thanks for the "tip" re: who to contact ... my "-----".

Hello Srikumar,
The details in the dark parts are indeed not total. The light was not optimal. But it is not always possible to photograph in the ideal circumstances. The pose of the bird is attractive and your timing was exact. Good composition and a nice blue sky in the background.
Regards,
Peter

Hi Srikumar. A very good shot. Colours are good and strong. Probably the best shot you'll get from a difficult POV. Well done! TFS Trevor

Difficult light but a magical moment,

Hi Srikumar,

The birds are well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the birds. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
