Booted eagle in the Zhiguli mountains (Aquila pennata)

  • Gleb Berloff
Terrible-quality photograph of a booted eagle above a famous mountain range near Samara in Russia. Was soaring above the mountains. Despite it being rare in the region, I confused it with a short-toed eagle, which is much rarer, and the ensuing argument led me to reconsider...
