    Nice series. All are really good captures. The one of the secretary bird is particularly interesting because you don't get to see that bird, or that behaviour, very often. :thumbup:

    Hey Andy
    Great series of images pal - the first one is classic Bald Eagle - the Bateluer, which I have never heard of looks like it had a bad feather day and the last shot reminds me of a B52 - beautifully menicing.
    As for the brutal attack on the rubber snake well it's original, very brave, rubber snakes can give you a fair old twang

    At first I thought the last one might be a Condor, as the one that I saw and (with much less success) tried to photograph here , but the light head is confusing me again...

    That bird show which I tried to take photos of from the sidelines (not the place where the spectators were sitting) also has a secretary bird in their rows which stomped on a fake snake -- that is fun to watch, isn't it?
