[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a shot of a pair of Bateleur Eagles (Terathopius ecaudatus)that I took in the Kruger National Park approximately two years ago.
It is the most easily identified eagle and is found in the far northern parts of South Africa. The black, white and chestnut plumage, combined with the diagnostic wing shape and very short tail, render this bird unmistakable.

Hello Frans,
Beautiful photo of these Bateleurs in splendid light. Good sharpness and a lovely communication between the birds. The black frame is a bit heavy in my opinion.
Regards,
Peter

hi,bird lovers, congratulations

Hallo Frans
Eendag as ek groot is gaan ek ook een afneem, en miskien as ek bietjie ouer is sal ek dit regkry om twee af te neem. Wonderlike foto! Om twee van die prag arende bymekaar te kry en nog af te neem ook wil gedoen wees. Jy was voorwaar gelukkig. Dit is darem regtig pragtige vols en soos jy s kan mens hul redelik maklik uitken. Met ons laaste Kruger vakansie was ons baie gelukkig om 'n baie jong Bateleur langs die pad te kry. Die outjie (met nog baie blou in die gesig) het vir ons genoegsame tyd gegee om hom/haar af te neem. Dit was regtig 'n baie mooi toneel, net soos die ene van jou. Vriendelike groete.
Anna
