I was cleaning up some tree branches when I was alerted to the presence of a Wedge Tailed Eagle by the local birds going beserk. My camera wasn't too far away so I rushed inside to get it but only to discover that the eagle had disappeared. A quick walk around the paddocks and I could see it perched in a gum tree about 100 metres away.
It wasn't long before it was flushed out by a pair of angry magpies and a couple of ravens, beginning to soar majestically as only an eagle can do.
There was little time to check the settings on my camera so I blasted away as it flew directly over me with some of the shots filling the viewfinder, capturing only part of the bird. Here's a few quick snaps that I managed to take less than an hour before making this post.
