Wedge-tailed Eagle

Glad I found this image nestled away under an obscure folder name; thought I'd bring it to the top again.

Location: Healesville Sanctuary, Victoria

I'm not sure if it looks strong and handsome or mean and ugly. Great photo.

Yesterday we saw a concert with Eagle Eye Cherry. Now you catched a real Eagle Eye. Great work !

Judy said...

Yup! You should be able to lay hands on this shot! I love the mantle of feathers, and his arrogant pose!! Eagles are allowed to be arrogant! Maybe it is even in their job description...

Liz said...

WOW!! Wonderful shot, Carole!
I really do need to get out to Lone Pine Sanctuary. Apparently they have a raptor show. I think it's the only way I will capture a shot like this!

Jan Castle said...

I'm speechless...did you really take this picture? GORGEOUS!
Paper Hugs,

I loved all your comments; thanks all :). And to Jan, I sure did take the photograph, and it was through a wire fence at that.
