Eagles

I was very pleased to shoot a couple of eagles (photographically) in Mai Po marshes nature reserve late last year, an adult and a juvenile.

I returned a few times and then, early in 2021 , I got another chance with this lovely, but endangered and vulnerable, eastern imperial eagle (Aquila heliaca).

This has been processed as a black and white image which i think suits its boldness and attitude.

Worldwide the eastern imperial eagle is listed as vulnerable,. The usual suspects of habitat loss and prey depletion play a big part in endangering the species, but more direct threats from humans are often cited.

These birds are nomadic. They hitch a ride on the dramatic migrations of gentler birds, picking them off, as predators do. In Mai Po they have ducks and egrets and other birds to provide their feasts.



Here the original image.
