Verreaux's Eagle (Black Eagle) Aquila verreauxii

Spitzkoppe, Namibia

Thursday 26th April 2007

  One of my favourite raptors seen on this particular trip. I first saw one at Table Mountain, South Africa. This particular one was seen at a distance at Spitzkoppe as it hunted Dassie’s (Hyrax).

  Photos taken with a Canon EOS 30D and a Canon 75-300mm Lens.
