Wings of an Eagle


We have two new Wedge tail eagles at home.. most likely the ones who dropped the red-bellied black that Cleo bought home…they always stop me in my tracks..i adore them so large so fluid so powerful and almost killed off back in the day here with a huge bounty on their heads as mistaken stock killers….

When I see them I try and get pics….it usually is not really successful…my long lens not long enough and the sky is a real pain as a background.. these pics I took were when one came close enough to the trees to try and get a good shot..not very clear but bigify and you get the idea….I also have this old song from an Aussie Legend Russel Morris always in my head asΒ i watch them ..enjoy the clip is not my pics but an Aussie compilation…

Makes me want to fly

  1. Eagles of all types are so majestic – I love the way they use the air currents to soar, dip, capture……they’re just beautiful. I hope next time one gets a snake they dump it OUTSIDE your fence instead of in!

  2. That is great that you get to see such wonderful creatures. I am somewhat fascinated by raptors. We have a few bald eagles around here and a lot of ospreys. I once sat on my patio every day for a month or more with my camera and waited to get a photo of an osprey pulling a fish out of the water. One day my friend called and while I was distracted with the phone call I heard a splash and turned to see an osprey pulling a fish from the water just 30 feet in front of me. It’s hard to get good pictures. πŸ™‚

  3. Eagles are wonderful, I love it to watch any birds of prey. It feels like the whole world is silence when they sail through the air. Easy’s breeder hunt with birds of prey, it’s a pleasure to watch them ( when they train, not the “real” hunt).
