Big Wings

Just a quick post this time around, folks. This is from my 2010 archives (I've got sooo many photos still unprocessed from then until now, so every now and again I dive into the depths of the archives).

I captured this photo of the Lesser Spotted Eagle in the Kruger National Park one afternoon. I have some photos of it perched on the stump, but quite liked this "takeoff" moment with the wings stretched up and the feet just leaving the perch. As far as technically perfect bird photography goes, the background is a bit busy - but I don't mind that much as it's a rare bird to photograph properly (it's a summer migrant to South Africa).

What do you think?

Techs:
Nikon D300s
