  8. Bob, das sind tolle Aufnahmen.
    Ich glaube nicht, dass es ein Adler ist. Dafür
    ist er zu klein. (Bitte, das ist meine Meinung)
    Wunderschöne Musik!
    Einen schönen Abend wünscht dir
    Irmi

  22. I'm going to leave it to the experts; the raptor family from your side may differ from over here and those I find hard to get right ....super photos though (as always :)). Great to see.

  23. Nice. You really got up close and personal with the eagle.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yes it looks like a booted eagle when I am checking in my "Delachaux" book of birds... Aquila pennata.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Bird looks very beautiful. The yellow color neat the beak is nice to see and it has sharp beak. It looks like eagle!

  26. I am not an expert dear Bob, i don't know, the only thing I know is that it looks superb !
    amazing ! saluti

  27. Sure one I have not seen yet, so I will not answer this quiz!!
    A great idea Bob that got many to try to guess!
    Antonio is very clued up about birds but without seeing the entire body difficult to be 100% sure... But that is what a quiz is about, HAHA!!!
    As Adrian says, one thing is certain it is bird of prey!! LOL!
    Keep well my friend!

  28. Did you take the photo in the wild or in a zoo?
    Dzial could be right - I've taken eagle portraits as well in the past from eagles which are much smaller and daintier than the mighty fish eagle or other bigger species.
    Have a great weekend and keep on taking great photographs!

  33. Hey Bob, I agree with Antonio, I think it is a Booted eagle, ( Aquila pennata ) a light morph. Hugs, very good portraits.

  35. Adrian is the closest...though he forgot to mention that the beak is very bird like.
