There is something so majestic and regal about birds of prey: powerful talons, sturdy, hooked bills, their variety of coloration but most of all their ease and freedom of flight. When guests ask what animal I would be if I could choose one, my answer is always the same: an eagle. While the African Fish Eagle has always appealed the most due to life next to the river and incredible hunting skills, I think any eagle lives a rather incredible life. There is always such excitement seeing one of these distinguished creatures out on game drive, and attempting to capture this regality in a shot.
I hope you all enjoy the selection I have put together here.
I’ll leave you with this incredible video filmed on Londolozi, of a young Martial Eagle attempting to take down a klipspringer on Ximpalapala Koppie:
