It was a bright afternoon at Kaziranga National Park in Assam and I had just entered the Western Range for my afternoon jeep safari. We had about entered the main entrance and were supposed to cross the first jungle bridge when I noticed this Crested Serpent Eagle sitting on a dull tree branch and against the clear blue sky.
It posed for about 2 minutes during which I got a good collection of shots and frames. But, most of these shots looked more or less the same. However, all this changed in the last 30 seconds or so, which I refer to as the ‘Moments to Flight’ in this post.
These are the priceless moments of the transition of the Crested Serpent Eagle from a still position to getting ready to fly to finally flight. Kinda like a short story
I hope you like this series as this shows the bird in three different frames and in three different types of activity.
