This is Pic 1.
(sorry the pic 2 got uploaded first)
Never saw a raptor with its widespread wings and its prey, so close before.

A raptor, Eastern Marsh Harrier-Greater spotted Eagle and it's feast glossy ibis.
In this pic, the raptor is enjoying its kill.

We had booked a boat tour for flamingos watching at Bhigwan They are migratory birds here during winter in MH, India.
Our boat tour operator, Sagar, saw the raptor and diverted the boat, he insisted that we better get one good pic of a raptor in action than the flamingos which are usually in one position.
Such kills are of rare insight.

So, I feel, waking up early and leaving for a far off destination was totally worth.
This was also clicked from the boat ride.

Clicked at Bhigwan, Pune District, Maharashtra, India
