And if they were on me, with that beak and those talons... I would be worried!
Fortunately, her focus wasn't one me, so I could just relax, enjoy the moment, and photograph. It's great when we can find a bird of prey perching in her natural habitat; even better when we can get close enough to thake these photos.
This is a changeable hawk-eagle, Nisaetus cirrhatus, and spotted her (or better, the guide did!) while doing a safari in Sri Lanka. Simply beautiful!
Truth be told, they are probably used to jeeps passing by, because we were really close and she didn't seemed that much disturbed. She took her time to scout the surroundings before taking off: more time to enjoy the show!
