Tawny Eagle

Another post of the same Tawny Eagle that i had posted earlier, this image was shot from under the car, yes UNDER THE CAR! :)

Tawny Eagle
Canon EOS 20D + Sigma 135-400mm
Location: Bangalore, India

A little info about the Tawny Eagle from Wiki:
Length: 62–72 cm
Wingspan: 165–185 cm
Weight: 1.6–2.4 kg
The Tawny Eagle's diet is largely fresh carrion of all kinds, but it will kill small mammals up to the size of a rabbit, reptiles and birds up to the size of guineafowl. It will also steal food from other raptors.
The call of the Tawny Eagle is a crow-like barking, but it is rather a silent bird except in display.

  4. @ TERENCE & GRANT: Thanks, im glad you liked it. :)

    @TOM: i decided to get out of the car, crawl around it to the rear and then shoot the bird, but my friend suggested that i try shooting it from under the car. :)

    @CHRIS: Well its my friends car Chris. It was a swift, and thanks... :) The blur in the foreground is all the dried up grass right in front of the lens, as i was lying down while shooting this image.
