The cry of the fish eagle is one of the haunting sounds of Africa and this is a superb capture of that iconic bird, Srirama! Superb shot!

What a good-looking eagle, Sraja! The black and brown color combination on the wings is gorgeous. And the in-flight pose with raised wings is excellent. Very well done!
