Lophoa.... THe crown emphesize the elegance of this eagle. Directed eyes are also effective. Many thanks for sharing this gorgeous species' photo.

Ha Daniel,
Deze knapperd heeft iets duivels...
Heel mooie plaat overigens!
Heb altijd neiging om vragen te stellen over de plaats, omstandigheden enz...:-)

Hallo Daniel,
Eigenlijk hetzelfde verhaal als bij de vorige foto. Ook deze Afrikaanse Zwarte Kuifarend vaak gezien maar nooit zo mooi in beeld gekregen. Fascinerende ogen. De centrale compositie doet het hier erg goed.
