A rare visitor came to pose for the camera today. This is a wild Eastern Imperial Eagle, listed as "Vulnerable" on the IUCN Red List. This is a juvenile, a stunning bird. The adult is not as attractive.

At first it stayed in the trees, providing a boring plain background. However after two very tense hours of it flying away and returning, it jumped down from the tree and posed for this portrait.
