Secretarybird - The Hunt

The Secretarybird is one of the most majestic birds of prey in sub-Saharan Africa.
Hunting its prey on foot in open grasslands and savannah, provides the ideal opportunity to capture these birds in action.

Stalking through the Highveld grassland with long strides looking for an early morning snack.
The Secretarybird suddenly disturbed an insect.

The insect had a few trick up his sleeve, and tried every one of them.

Eventually the Secretarybird caught-up with its quarry, for an early morning snack.
