African Hawk Eagle (Aquila spilogaster)

Thank you very much Tom (pirate) to show me my mistake.

I have captured this Juvenile African Hawk - Eagle at Kruger National Park. It's very tough to capture bird photographs sitting in your self-driven car and you are not allowed to get out of the car. But I try my best to get at least a decent picture. Here point of view showing this bird was top on the tree and bit far, but 600mm always help to get reach to the subject.
This is a large bird of Prey. They hunt small mammals, reptiles and birds.

Ciao Srikumar, great capture of superb eagle in nice pose on beautiful blurry BG, wonderful natural colors, splendid sharpness and fine details, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Srikumar,

The bird is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details Tawny Eagle. It is clear and sharp. Have a nice day.


Hi Sri,
Despite of the difficulties you have with the self-driven car, this photo is extraordinary, and the low PoV makes it even more unique. Incredible clearness, very good composition and nice colors are the trademarks here, but I love the eagle's pose and the smooth, quiet background as well. Superb shot, hats off for you!
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hello Srikumar,
Very good capture of this interesting specie of birds. Details, colors are as usual the best.
Have a nice week....
