[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
Le lac Baringo s'étend sur 300 km2. Son altitude est inférieure d'environ 1000 mètres à celle du Lac Nakuru. Profonde de 12 mètres par endroit, ses eaux laiteuses prennent une couleur rouille ou ocre selon le temps qu'il fait. La photo présentée met en évidence cet aspect particulier qui donne à l'endroit toute sa magie. La présence de nombreux oiseaux renforce cette impression de nature sauvage. La vedette de l'endroit reste, cependant, le Pygargue Vocifère. Plusieurs couples nichent au sommet de grands arbres qui bordent le lac. C'est l'occasion pour les photographes natures de prendre quelques clichés de ce maître du haut vol et de la pêche.

Excellent prise nature et superbe action de l'oiseau. Les couleurs et l'éclairage sont parfaits. Les détails dans le plumage et la netteté sont extra.

FÉLICITATIONS et merci pour l'envoie !!

Excellent action stopping shot! I can hardly contain the excitement of anticipating what happened in the next few tenths of a second. Hope you had your MkII in continuous drive. Composition-wise the green horizon distracts but there was obviously nothing you could've done about it. Nice catch and TFS!!

Tout-à-fait magnifique, Farid.
The angle of the bird, the position of the wings, the legs and talons extended forward... what a breath-taking scene!
Vraiment superbe. Félicitations, mon ami.

Magnifique timing Farid, l'attitude de l'aigle sur le point de saisir sa proie est parfaitement rendue. Mes félicitations aussi pour le piqué de la photo. Didier.

Excellent shot. Only a half second more and we could see what he try to catch.
But anyway, very sharp and well focused photo.
