It’s a great ac­tion shot of a Tawny Ea­gle hunt­ing a Na­maqua Sand­grouse at 14th Wa­ter­hole on the Mata-Mata road in the Kgala­gadi. High shut­ter speeds and shal­low depth of field have cap­tured an ex­cit­ing mo­ment and pro­duced a strik­ing and un­clut­tered image. It’s not al­ways easy to cap­ture th­ese su­per-fast mi­cro events, and this image clearly demon­strates a good grasp of pho­tog­ra­phy along with an un­der­stand­ing of the sub­ject. Crop­ping it slightly dif­fer­ently, with the birds a tad to the right of the frame would have made this image a lit­tle more pleas­ing to the eye. But well done Kyle.
