Gliding high over a marshy area in the Serengeti in Tanzania, Africa, this Eagle Owl (Bubo Lacteus) in the largest of African owls. It’s named the Verreaux Eagle Owl, after a French naturalist, Jules Verreaux.

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.
