excellent shot, andrea! :-)
i really like the pov & composition -
the combination of the colorful eagle and
the old tree is great.
do you have more shots of the tree?
well seen & captured, thor.

i liked the colours of this eagle.Good POV and great compo with well-seen details.if this was a closer shot more details could be seen.the image can be cropped a bit more to highlight the subject.

Interesting bird in a very interesting picture, I liked your compo a lot.
I think that you should be gentle with sharpening, I can see the haloes around the subjects in the frame.

Outstanding composition on this Bateleur Eagle. I have only observed them in captivity here. They are very impressive birds of prey. The light here was excellent. Great exposure with the superb colors and sharp detail.

You have an impressive portfolio giving evidence of your many travels.
This is a good composition using the very impressive tree to fill the frame. The colours are great and the DOF is fine. The BG with the blue-blue sky is excellent and the exposure was well managed.
Well done and TFS.
PS. I am still waiting for the day to find this guy here in the Hluhluwe Park at close quarters and photograph it. So far I've only seen it fly in the distance, but the day will come. In the mean time I will appreciate yours.

Hello, Andrea. A colourful and well composed pic with a fantastic POV. The blue sky seems quite electric, and brings the detail of the eagle and the tree into cynosure. TFS!

A great capture, and the composition with the blue sky BG is really very good.

The empty space around speaks about a free bird. It is possible to depart, but I still shall stand on this snag. Good work.

Good shot - a little too much sky maybe in the crop and a touch soft, but still a great post and well detailed note.

Never having seen this type of bird, it is nice you also include the information.
I like your contrast and rich sky colour.
Your compression is quite low however and that is what makes the jpg artifact around the head.
I think this photo is a good composition and could look super if a bit higher resolution and some of the little black dots cloned out.
Have a great weekend
