This Fish Eagle (Haliaeetus vocifer) never lost sight of his prey even as a sudden gust of wind caused an extreme 180 degree correction in his final flight path.

Singing to the Sun…

As my small group of penguin friends and I awaited the imminent sunrise, the silence was broken by a melodious chant from my right where a lone penguin seemed to be joyously greeting the rising sun. This encouraged the others and soon the air was filled with a beautiful chorus by the whole group to greet the sunrise.

Simon's Town, South Africa.
