[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
They have swooped down and almost hit me in the head so many times, a few have grazed my hair even, but on film? My camera was never as quick as them. After 11 years of trying to "catch" one, I did. They follow the fisheermen to steal from the nets, eat dead things washed up, or actually fish themselves, in the Arabian sea for their dinner. They are huge and fast, unafraid of humans. (I believe it is an eagle)

I love photographing the birds of prey - but seldom get a clear enough shot to share. This is a great effort! Congrats to you!! It's interesting placement having the bird at the top of the frame, and I believe that it creates the mood of the hunt. A little noisy, perhaps, but clear enough to see and a good capture (so to speak). Cheers! Penny

Hello Gloria,
Superb composition and fine details in this majestic hunter!
Seems like he has spotted something interesting, let's hope it wasn't the photographer...

Hi Gloria,
Nice job on your first inflight. Clear details, good color, DOF, and a great pose..
Plenty of space for the bird to look down into also ;}
Well done & have a great weekend!
