The secretary bird is a magnificent raptor that stands over a metre tall on its long legs. It stalks its prey on the ground and flies to its nest at the top of a tall acacia tree, where this one was photographed in Kenya by the artist. The image was caught at the moment a gust of wind blew its long neck feathers, which normally hang down, up and away from its majestic looking face.
