[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
'Distinguished from all other dark brown eagles by having unfeathered creamy-white legs' says Sasol. I'm not sure about the creamy-white, but there are definitely no feathers...
The picture was taken handheld and has been cropped with contrast and sharpness adjusted.
The picture was taken at the Thornybush game reserve near Hoedspruit.

Hallo Daniel,
what a beautiful eagle.
It's a perfect motive - the side-face and the orange eye. In my opinion the bird could be a little bit brighter.
I made a little workshop for you - perhaps you like it?
Have a nice time, bye
