It would be great to think I just happened upon this snapshot in the wild, it certainly looks to be doesn't it? Instead, it was a grand photo opportunity during a free-flight raptor show at the Alice Springs Desert Park, N.T.
with a magnificent backdrop of the MacDonnell Ranges
New addition: This photo taken by Paul Fergus, tour participant who also went home, referenced his photos, and found this to be the Whistling Kite; thanks Paul for your feedback, and sharing your super photo.
Have I whet your appetite with majestic scenery? The first of photos taken on my recent trip have been uploaded to Snap Happy Online. Hope you'll follow me there, and see what I saw for you too, the wonderful scenery and places of interest, from the Red Heart of Alice Springs to Uluru, in the Northern Territory.
