    Bald Eagle Alaska, US. I've heard of photo safaris baiting African Fish Eagles up in Chobe, perhaps a similar situation. Nevertheless, an absolute belter in my opinion.

    Jip, magnificent.

    Would love to know how it was done. Pin-sharp all the way through, yet clearly the shutter speed used was high enough to freeze motion, which indicates a shortish lens was used, yet the next two eagles in line are pretty large in the frame, so probably not a wide-angle lens either?

    Is it not maybe a composite photo, showing the same eagle in different positions on its flight path towards getting the fish?

    Kruger Shalati: The Train on the Bridge. One of the most anticipated and exciting new offerings coming to the iconic Kruger National Park, South Africa. A perfect combination of Africa’s most breathtaking natural splendours with well-deserved luxuries aboard a newly refurbished train that’s reminiscent of African excellence.

    Permanently stationed on the historically-rich Selati Bridge above the Sabie River, Kruger Shalati will offer the most unique luxury accommodation in a re-envisioned train which will pay homage to the guests who explored the park nearly 100 years ago while welcoming new explorers from near and far. The train celebrates where the first visits to the iconic park were allowed in the early 1920s, the train would park overnight in the exact spot where Kruger Shalati will be positioned.

    Offering 31 rooms, consisting of 24 carriage rooms and 7 Bridge House rooms, all of which will provide a deeply visceral experience, tailored for immersive comfort. Whether you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind adventure, an enthralling break or to simply immerse yourself in earth’s finest creations, Kruger Shalati looks forward to welcoming you on a journey of discovery with nature in the most extraordinary way imaginable.

    The glass-walled, large train rooms allow for infinite views along the length of the majestic Sabie River while the style of the train is a celebration of African design in collaboration with local art and crafting skills. High above the riverbanks, aligned with the floor level of the train, will lie our bespoke deck with pool, offering a swimming experience unlike any other – with crocodile, hippos, buffalos and elephants greeting guests meters below – a vista unlike any other!

    Thought-provoking, unique design is core to our offering, but the holistic experience is centred around our human-ness, our cultural nuances, the people involved in the making of every element, and ultimately the kindness with which we receive our guests.

    Experience the Kruger, suspended over the Sabie River.

    On a more serious note though, I did a bit more research. This is 'art' by Belgian artist Wim Delvoye. Link: https://inhabitat.com/wim-delvoyes-i...ires-into-art/

    The animals are trained and the shots are staged. Wouldn't mind doing it myself, but I feel disclosure should accompany such photos.
