With the swishing of wings, a Bateleur appears literally out of the blue, flying low over the bushveld and perches on the dead branches of a tree nearby.
It was a special moment to come within range of an eagle considered to be threatened in South Africa. The Bateleur curiously watched us for a while, showing no signs of feeling threatened by our presence.
As suddenly as it arrived, the Bateleur lifted it's wings and gracefully glided away. A whispered "Thank You" to the sky where it came from, the first words that came to mind.
