The Opportunist

On a recent trip to Lake Naivasha, Kenya I took a boat ride out on the lake. The boatman chucked a fish into the water and we waited for an African Fish Eagle perched high atop a tree to swoop in and snatch the tasty morsel. After a minute of looking through the viewfinder he still hadn't moved even a feather. Out of the corner of my eye I caught some movement only to realize that another eagle was coming in from another direction. I just managed to grab a few frames of him lifting his dinner from the river.

Location: Lake Naivasha, Kenya
