[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This bird, a Lesser Spotted Eagle (Aquila pomarina), was a non-breeder, heavily moulting. It is a very dark individual, resembling Greater Spotted Eagle (Aquila clanga); or maybe it is a hybrid? It was paired to a normally coloured Lesser Spotted Eagle.

Hi Paul

You really are an expert in flying birds of prey!
Another really good shot!
Very nice sharp details, great light, lovely colors and an excellent perfect blue BG.

Bravo and TFS

Hi Paul,
Again this great bird in-flight! Like Horia said, you are the expert here :) This one is darker than the other but details are great! Good composition too. TFS,
