Wahlberg's Eagle
I have captured this picture of Wahlberg's Eagle at Kruger National, South Africa during our visit in December 2018. I found this bird almost in the same area where I captured (my previous post) Lesser - Stripped Swallow. It was bit tough while setting Sun is in front of your lens.

Wahlberg's eagle (Hieraaetus wahlbergi) is a bird of prey that is native to sub-Saharan Africa, where it is a seasonal migrant in the woodlands and savannas. It is named after the Swedish naturalist Johan August Wahlberg. Like all eagles, it belongs to the family Accipitridae.

Hi Srikumar: You did a good job showing us this bird photographed in very difficult light. Perhaps you need to lighten it a bit in post processing for more natural lighting effect.

Hi Srikumar,wonderful capture of this eagle from Kruger,the best pose and quality of sharpness,the colors of backgroud are perfect too for the plumage of this species. Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

Hi Srikumar,

It is looking like the bird is posing for you, good eye contact. The point of view is showing the details of the Wahlberg's Eagle. The light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.


Hi Sri,
Light-wise a bit similar as your previous photo (not only in location), but the quality is the same extreme high, such as visual impact. Fantastic photo with the golden tone of sunset, and the composition's also gorgeous - simplistic yet very effective, with eye contact as a great addition. Perfect sharpness and exposure as well. Congratulations!
Kind regards from Ireland, László
