[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

A juvenile White-Tailed Eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla) chased by a Hooded Crow (Corvus cornix).....

I do not know why this crow followed in flight this eagle....Is certain that he kept on flying after him with great courage......

Hello Marius,
Nice in flight photos in exceptional sharpness. Beautiful natural colours.

Hi Marius, my neighbour in the gallery today,
Beautiful pair of action photos, great sharpness, shutter speed, contrast. The photos also tell an entire story - I've also seen such chase in Ireland, also after the nesting season was over. Protection of the conspecific birds and the hunting ground should be the reason, but it's just my guess. Perfect post, congratulations.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hello Marius.

Great action photography from the lives of birds,
with great focus, sharpness and details, TFS

Hello Marius,
Nice inflight capture of this Hooded Crow as it intimidates the much larger eagle. I see small birds and crows hassling hawks in this same manner quite regularly. Very sharp focus revealing excellent detail while showing beautiful natural colors.
