Settling down but the perch gives way.
Nearly lost it .
Wise owl perched  on the nest - very well camouflaged.

It seems the Fish Eagle at lake panic took flight.

Here are some photos of the Fish Eagle not getting his footing. The thin branch that he was trying to occupy kept giving way.
We also had the privilege to spot a Giant Eagle owl perched on his nest that was on top of a Hammerkop nest.

I like the owl....my favourite. We are always looking for these guys in the trees at camp. It is amazing what one can find.
