Weekly Photo Challenge-Careful


My contribution for this week’s challenge…



Wedge Tail Eagle.

Last Wednesday I sighted not one,

but two wedge tail eagles….


air brakes on…

and did not have my camera!!!!!


watch the lights

A two or three minute drive from home seemed like half an hour…not to mentioned the trip back.


made it

The birds were obliging and kept low and one carefully

manoeuvred to land on the top of these railway signals.


the fly by

These are not the greatest photos as no matter

how careful I was to stop camera shake etc.,

a 500 mm hand-held lens,

 resting on my car door was not ideal.

However, it was my first sighting of eagles in flight

and that was enough.

It has only taken all winter and half spring to find them!
