Eastern Europe to Central Asia, Africa. A rare breeder in the east of the region with small populations surviving in scattered parts of Slovakia, Hungary and Romania, Bulgaria, the former Yugoslavia, northern Greece, Turkey and the Caucasus. A tiny population may still linger on in Cyprus. Also breeds in Moldova, Ukraine and southern Russia east to Central Asia reaching western Sinkiang. The first breeding for the Czech Republic took place in southern Moravia in 1998 and the first Austrian breeding record for nearly two centuries occurred in 1999. Birds from the Balkans and Turkey are largely resident but those from further north and east are migratory. Autumn passage takes place in August -October and the return is in late February-April. Small numbers are seen annually at the Bosphorus and at Borçka in Turkey in autumn and Eilat in spring.

I really enjoyed. I could feel the taste of power which originates from the wide spread and beautiful wings of the eagle. It arouses the lust of fly in my heart. A soft and smooth slide in the deep blue sky, free of any gravity. A special feeling of weightlessness fill all over the picture.

Amir, we are waiting for more captured moments that may remains for ever.
Good luck.
