#16 Serengeti - African Crowned Eagle

Posted by
kiwisa (North Shore, New Zealand) on 16 November 2018 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Another one of my "first sightings'. Our wonderful guide Bariki, kept moving the vehicle so I got a clear view of this magnificent bird. Success as I got many photos the bird turned his head from side to side surveying the land below him.

Another great capture. And that lens of yours is beautifully calibrated - got the eye in focus yet again!

@dobbino: Thanks Rob. I bought myself a 1.4 extender and used it for the first few days, but then was worried about the focus. However, when I got the photos onto the screen, I was really happy.
