National Geographic Picture of the Month December 2017
Evil look. Real and spectacular Spizaetus Tyrannus while taking a shower in Misiones, Argentina.
She was saved from inevitable death by GüiráOga Wildlife Reserve Team after being shot by hunters on her breastbone. They not only take care of animals but also let them free once healed if possible.
Her eyes? No, it’s not a mistake in the pic. These birds have a nictitating membrane used for protection while hunting or adverse climate situations.
We want to thank National Geographic, National Geographic YourShot and National Geographic India for these awards.
