Chivero Dawn

By accipiter  
Many thanks for the cc's and UA's on my walking with birds upload and special thanks to Bliba, fotobee and Helenlinda for their precious UA's.
I am rushed today and back in my archive. This is a dawn image captured on Lake Chivero in Zimbabwe. Special for me because there is an African fish eagle about to land in the tree. I watched him take a fish off the surface in the shadow area a few minutes later - the first time I had seen one catch a fish in such low light. No image of that unfortunately.
Hope you like it. A

A very lovely Bushveldt image, Arthur. Pity you cannot record the wild lonesome cry of the Eagle, to hear with the photo ! Unfortunately I have no more awards left, sorry about that. Sad Regards Martin
