[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The African Fish-eagle is the voice of Africa
where you can hear its most typical call, you know that Nature is intact
For many it is just a black&white bird when seen soaring in the sky and you need good light and a not too light bg to see its amazing brown color.
This one was photographed at the Kazinga channel from the boat in late afternoon when light became softer again.
More to follow from this amazing boat trip

Hello Tom,
Now this is one gorgeous inflight photo!! The African Fish-eagle is certainly a beautiful bird as one can see by viewing your image. I simply love the contrasting black, brown, white and yellow colors in this shot.
You managed to perfectly freeze the bird inflight which allows us to see it's beautiful plumage as well as unique body features. A top quality photo in my book Tom!!!

Hello Tom,
This is really great! I've seen this eagle many times in Africa, but never made a photo of this bird of prey in this quality. The wings are gorgeous. Fantastic sharpness, details and very beautiful colours against the blurry background. Excellent composition. A beauty!

fascinating shot, wonderful capture of famous African eagle. Congratulations Tom. Thanks for sharing this beauty.
Best wishes

Hi Tom,great in flight capture whit spectacular details despite the very fast mouvement,you exif data are very interesting...i like it!Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

great flight capture, TFS Ori

Excellent in flight photo Tom with perfect sharpness on the eagle and superb colours. Dont know whats the BG but the grey streaks actually give appropriate sense of motion to the picture. Nicely done


Hello Mr.Tom,
Another beautiful picture.Nice to see its colours and details.Well captured.Like it.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice Sunday,

Fabulous focus with the bird in flight, the focus is already a legend through the work of Mr. Tom Conzemius. Thanks for giving to all who enjoy TrekNature, many beautiful images of prey, cut into the sky with brilliant definition. This osprey is no exception. Very well solved the bald white head, not exposure. Gorgeous. You make it sound "easy" these photographs in flight ... But they are not, go if they are ... Congratulations again, Master.

Wonderful inflight catch,remarkable sharp details and clarity of the subject.Soft and blurry patches of the BG created great dynamism.
