Southern pale chanting goshawk, Kalahari

This was one of the most common raptors we saw while in the Kgalagadi. Also one of the hardest to photograph, because they'd always tool off the moment you stopped the car.

As with everything else, patience is the key (and with this statement, I have officially have started sounding like my parents) - eventually, we found one fellow who was not as jittery as the rest of his clan, and allowed us to record his imperious pose.
