Watch Out !!!

(ISO 80, f/4.6, Shutter Speed 1/500 sec)

Photo taken in my Leh Trip at the shores of Dal Lake near Hazratbal Mosque. I clicked this pic with 12x zoom (optical) when crows were trying to find something in water next to the barbed wire fence, which is fixed inside the lake to stop the dirt and waste in the lake to move to shore. The Eagle was following its predatory instincts and trying to find out what has interested both the crows in the water (My interpretation of the scene)

My take....The Eagle is least bothered by what has crows attention diverted. All it is doing is sit around and wait for the right wind to make it spread its magnificent wings and fly away into the blue sky.

P.S. He could be thinking....What is that crowd at the other end? As if I care!

Oh and yes...brilliant shot

Great photo!
Maybe the eagle is thinking, "What losers! They could be checking each other out, or doing something more fun or cerebral. What is the point of looking at the water! Dumb! Crows...I tell you!"
