great photos of birds in flight. I particularly like the white background of these photos. It's jarring because they're suppose to be nature photos, but they lack all the other aspects of a nature shot (focusing instead on the subject at hand.)
Like many English people, I am really interested in the gaze, and I found the gaze of the Secretary Bird startling. Animals are, to most people, beneath us, in some ways just like women. This bird gazing at the audience is shocking, because we're not use to looking at them as an audience.
