Apart from its haunting call, the ad.

Found throughout except in the externe dry west. Call : A gull-like yelping given in flight or at rest.

Hi Farid,
Nice in-flight capture of this beautiful eagle taken with a good frontal POV. tfs

Hi Farid
Very nice flight picture with great compo and very nice light.
It looks a bit washed out (greyish), so I just adapted a bit the curve in my WS

yet another beautiful shot from you!
this must be at Transport dam near Pretoriuskop. I managed to get a fish eagle flying shot at the same place last weekend. will post it soon.

Hi Farid,
Excellent POV, DOF, and nice detail.
I did a WS to complete my critique.
Well done!
