Another great photography contest returns! @derangedvisions is back with a weekly contest, and starts in beauty with one of my favourite themes: Animals! Be sure to check the original post and the rules here!
As usual, I'm joining in the Amateur tier. And yes, wild animal it is. I've featured this model in one of your past contests, but was saving this pose for a special ocasion, and the return of the weekly contest seems a very good reason to me!
I almost drove my friends to madness with all the time I took photographing this changeable hawk-eagle Nisaetus cirrhatus, in a national park in Sri Lanka. And looking back at the photos... totally worth it! It's not that common to be able to get this close, and be able to enjoy the show without the eagle flying away.
And yet, there she stood, vigilant, changing positions from time to time.
After a few minutes, we left, and she still stood on the same perch, scouting the horizon. The guide was probably thinking I was a bit mad, with all the elefants roaming around and me looking at the eagle... but for me, this was one of the best sightings in the whole trip!
