Etosha National Park

In Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in South Africa This martial eagle seemed to greet the early morning sun. When he took off he broke the rule and did not fly off towards the sun on his left. He plunged straight down to catch a large snake. So despite the long wait I missed the anticipated take off into the glowing sunlight
