This eagle hails from our Mpumalanga province but ended up at the Sanctuary because it was injured and lost part of its left wing. Their habitat is the savannah bushveld.
Thank you so much for commenting and voting on my Tawny Eagle yesterday - and a huge thanx to Ju [JuBarney] for the UA !!
Have a great day !!

Perhaps I am not seeing this one as others, Herman, but I cannot agree about the detail: the image looks rather 'soft' to me.
Sorry about that but I am only being honest........but an interesting subject with a past history.
Ronnie.

I think it is rather soft too which is a shame, but the subject is interesting and well worth a view.
