Bird Photography: Changeable Hawk Eagle from Yala National Park, Sri Lanka

I was lucky to get some brilliant mammal, reptile and bird photographs during my recent wildlife safari trip to Yala National Park that is located in South Eastern Sri Lanka. One of the more special ones out of the lot was this Changeable Hawk Eagle that posed a long while for me.

And the best part was that this bird was pretty close range. Hence, I got some super sharp close up shots. In my mind, it is the eyes of the raptors that make them so special. It is their eyes that make them spot their prey miles away and it is these pair of eyes that can be quite scary and pretty at the same time.

I was happy that I got good shots of the eyes of this Changeable Hawk Eagle. I am sure that you will enjoy them too.
