Gabar Goshawk leaving after bathing with its mate IMG_4563

I found these two Gabar Goshawks bathing in a rain puddle in the Kgalagadi in May. I know, it never rains in May but it rained on us for over a day producing some exceptional opportunities for the Kalahari!

 

Anyhow, when one finished bathing, it flew out of the water over to dyier land where it preened. It is just taking off in this picture.
