Outstanding wildlife photos, again... The 5th of the eagle and n°7 "at the bar"(how funny...) are my favorites.
Thanks for sharing with us.
Passioned by beautiful pictures, not a very active photographer though...
Regards,
Vincent

PS I use google translate a lot to write better English. So, if mistake, I's google, not me. ;)
