Canon 2Dx mark II.
400 mm DO with TC 1.4 
ISO 1600 F5.6 1/1250
A beautiful bird in danger of extinction. Nesting in Eastern Europe / Asia mainly in May. Once a year she crosses Israel on the way south, and then she can be seen for two weeks.
Picture was taken in Hungary 3 days ago.

Thank you.

Outstanding mating behavior photo... Perch is perfect and BG looks ominous...
Head angles are terrific.

Such a great image! The fact that they're breeding and/also in danger of extinction makes this a very powerful image.
