Greater Spotted Eagle with kill

These images are from the same Jan series of the Greater Spotted Eagle. As we entered our regular shooting area, we noticed this eagle being harassed by a lot of kites. On closer inspection we found the Eagle siting with a snake that it had just killed. My friend Vinay and I were fortunate enough to make quite a few images.

Being continuously harassed by the kites, the eagle took-off in search of a more peaceful spot.

Followed the eagle flying till it perched a little distance away and made a few more images.
