This is taken in Masai Mara in Kenya.

Again, Not sure what this bird is yet. I like to say Red tail Hawk but look too big to be one. Some kind of brown eagle, Maybe.

Okay someone told me it's a Steppe Eagle, and kebapci said it's a tawny eagle (Aquila rapax). I looked it up. I can't tell the difference and They are closely related. Anyone wants to dispute. If not I'll go with "tawny eagle"

Cropping and cloning

First: I cropped most of the branch and cloned the rest out.
Second: I expanded the canvas on top of the bird to give it more "breathing" space and clone in the sky.

Now the branch does not bother me any more. Wink!
