    Tawny Eagle.

    The Tawny Eagle is a powerful raptor and is common in most National Parks within Botswana. This one posed beautifully whilst waiting for the air to warm up to catch a thermal.

    Looking to the left makes an interesting alternative to standard poses.

    A good shot but just one tiny thing which I'm not sure about.

    On the right side of it's 'neck' where the colour changes there is a minute trace of something pale, like a small hair. Or perhaps it is something in the background.

    Good eye Geoff, I had to look for it to see it but it does look like a hair catching the light. Nice capture Clive.

    Hi Geoff, you really have an eye for detail and I'm impressed, it does look like a small hair and I will look at the original. Maybe part of its last meal?
    Paul and James many thanks.
