A beautiful tawny eagle (Aquila rapax) standing in new grass, Grumeti Game Reserve, Serengeti, Tanzania. It is notable for its heavily feathered legs. The tawny eagle's diet is largely fresh carrion and small mammals. Best larger.

Superb shot Terry! I love the eye and other details.
This eagle looks really huge--it's hard to tell the actual size, but it has a really strong and forceful look about it.
Wonderful capture...beautiful raptor!
