The Mara, Kenya’s magical game reserve, gave up a rare display between the Secretarybird, a very large bird of prey and the Martial Eagle, who is the largest and strongest of African eagles in a showdown of who is tougher. We are unsure whether this was a territorial fight or if it was just plain ego kicking in, but we were very excited to witness it. Our guide, Sam, was shocked and said, “Tell me you got that.” I assured him that I certainly did, and we proudly showed off the photos to all the other guides, who were all equally amazed at this unique experience captured on film.
