A truly spectacular bird with a popular name I have never understood.

This is an endangered species, and I encountered very few of them and treasured every encounter, as this is a truly amazing looking bird. The secretary bird is a formidable hunter, and the prey, be it insects or mammals stand little chance once it has its eyes on them.

The long feathers on top might seem absent until a gust of wind flushes them out as seen here.

It sounds like this:

  • Aperture: ƒ/8
  • Camera: NIKON D4S
  • Focal length: 700mm
  • ISO: 160
  • Shutter speed: 1/800 s
