Chicken taker

Eagle [actually, more likely to be a species of kite than eagle, based on the splayed feathers on the tips of its wings, but up-country Thais tend to call all raptors eagles], scourge of the free-range chickens, glides effortlessly over the Village in search of an easy meal.

This species has learned to keep its distance from humans, who will protect their chicken "family" with great determination.

Very nice capture, and well placed within the frame smile
Ray: Hi Ellie. Thank you for your encouraging remarks. The image is a bit minimalist, but seems to convey some kind of story about their predatory role.
