Tawny Eagle - Stare of Intense Power An adult Tawny Eagle stares into the lens with supreme self confidence and power.  This guy accidentally landed right in front of me (approx. 10 feet away).  I had half a second to photograph him before he flew off again.

The Tawny Eagle is a large bird of prey. Like all eagles, it belongs to the family Accipitridae. It was once considered to be closely related to the migratory Steppe Eagle, ''Aquila nipalensis'', and the two forms have previously been treated as conspecific. They were split based on pronounced differences in morphology and anatomy; two molecular studies, each based on a very small number of genes, indicate that the species are distinct but disagree over how closely related they are.
