    An unexpected encounter with a Wedge-tailed eagle yesterday on the south coast. Not my best shot of these beauties, but with birds it's often a case of making the best of the situation you can. light was not desirable, and as usual it didn't hang around for long.....all good fun.

    Taken with Canon 7D and Canon 500 f4 + 1.4 x TC

    That is a very nice Angle Ausee,

    I usually see them pass by fast and high so for me this is so nice to see it side on!.

    You did well to get that shot.

    Cheers Eden

    I was hoping for something akin to a brickie's grin.
