Portrait of a Wedge Tailed Eagle - Aquila audax

After quite a bit of practice, I decided to go searching for a bid bird that had been seen in the region. The wedge tail eagle in question is a young female that frequents an area known as the dingo dreaming. A mountain with the face of the Australian wolf.

I decided to shoot in black and white as the eagle had a bit of blood from its last meal on its face. The result is a powerful picture detailing the face of a very successful, and very large bird.

Currently, these majestic birds are under the watchful eye of conservationists as their numbers are of concern. Such a large bird this specialised is hard to come by. Overall this is a great photograph to add to the growing collection.
