Booted Eagle (Hieraaetus pennatus)
Tejo Internacional, Portugal

With the spring, many birds of passage, like this Booted Eagle, arrive. Among the blossoming Rosemary, it has just caught a rabbit, which it will carry to a safe place. Its mate awaits on a nearby Cork Oak, where they have built their nest.
