The King… The Martial Eagle..

Martial Eagle (Polemaetus bellicosus).

I recently.. in fact not long ago.. posted on this Eagle.. (Click to see the post and the details of the bird) but my recent visit to the Kalahari gives me the opportunity to add some photos…

The one bird was at a water hole, obviously to slate its thirst, the other was of one we saw with it’s kill in a tree, this is a lucky capture and one I will never forget… here are the photos…
