  1. He’s got this look in his eyes – you don’t wanna cross this gentleman! 🙂 I wonder how long does it take for you to get a shot like that (I mean, getting to a place and waiting for the actual animal to show up etc.). Must be a thrill to be finally able to get such a result!

    1. Indeed, eyes on the prize 🙂 As for how long, well I got this shot on our ninth and final day in the park. When you get to know their behaviour you can predict when they’ll move so was very excited when I could see he was about to fly and had my camera ready and set up.

  2. What an incredible photo! Thank you so much for sharing it. I hope you don’t mind that I downloaded this image to my computer so I look at this magnificent creature now and then. If you’d prefer I delete it, please email me and I will do so.
