[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have captured this 'Tawny Eagle' (Aquila rapax) in Kruger National Park during our morning game drive when we were returning to our camp. This is another Eagle I found this year in Kruger.

Light wasn't in my favour. Sky was full of whitish cloud (You could see bit hallow like light in the BG) which looked very bright when sunlight was passing through. So it was very difficult to focus on and to get perfect exposure and details. Because when sun is in front of your lens, it's enough to damage your picture. But I have done my best here.

This time I saw different coloured Tawny Eagle and I will post others another time.
