Wildlife Photo (Bird) Grey-faced Buzzard Eagle in Flight
They only visit Okinawa from November until March so I have to catch as many shots of them in flight as I can while they're hunting rodents and reptiles. A shot like this one where I caught the bird circling overhead on a sunny day is rare. They usually perch in a tree where they can observe a field or open space below. When they spot a snake or mouse they will swoop down with such speed there's no time to focus.
