info

Unfortunately, steppe eagle appeared only once in front of the camera, moreover far away and high above our heads. If Kerem had not brought my attention to it I would not have photographed this bird at all. In terms of the size and silhouette it looked just the same like the imperial eagle, only the underside of the wings showed the difference. I already had a large number of photos of imperial eagle and shooting the bird from such a distance, with the sky in the background was no longer interesting to me. And what a surprise, here we have the first images of the steppe eagle. It was a day of miracles in our lookout point. Not to mention the cinereous vultures, but there also came griffon vultures, imperial eagle, long-legged buzzard, bearded vulture and steppe eagle at the end of the day. It really was a good day. Of course it was a pity that bearded vulture and steppe eagle did not land there in front of the lens, but it would probably be my too much greed towards nature...

Well, I haven’t brought interesting pictures of birds of prey. Just a few photos of documentary value, which do not deserve attention. Nevertheless, my unusual encounter with the steppe eagle is worth mentioning and recording. For several reasons. Photographing this bird does not belong to easy or often achievements. Secondly, so far in this bird species’ gallery there have been only a few photos of a bird soaring against the sky, framed to a great extent. So, we have a beautiful bird and several documentary pictures. Finally, the third and most important aspect – the current encounter with this bird in Thailand. We were driving by a dam between rice fields. There was some not very tall tree growing on the right, and a pond with domestic ducks near it. At a distance of not more than 10 meters, seeing our car, a steppe eagle soared in front of our eyes. We had probably disturbed it in preying, but there was an atmosphere of euphoria in our car resulting from such an unexpected encounter with this rare bird. It was very hot and the bird flew a distance of about 100 meters and sat on the ground peacefully observing the surroundings. There was time for taking out a tripod, converter and taking a few documentary photos of this bird – this time, on the ground, for a change. The encounter was so amazing that even our guide, Tu, was excited. He took a picture of the screen of my camera and officially reported the fact that such a rare observation had taken place. Those few pictures taken as a keepsake of this encounter are worth uploading.
