The Crested Serpent Eagle

On the trip to K.Gudi (Kyatharayanagudi, if you want to know) property of JLR, for the NTP 2010 meet, one raptor we all saw frequently was the

CRESTED SERPENT EAGLE

We saw the birds in sunshine:

In shadow... (just look at that "don't tangle with me!" look!)

and we saw them in the rain...sitting out, patiently, a heavy downpour that lasted all through our first safari....

and...I actually saw the Crested Serpent Eagle with a serpent...

Here is something that is, truly, the Eagle Eye!
