Whistling Kite - Haliastur sphenurus

Today's post is probably the first passable image of a large raptor in full flight. It has taken quite a bit of practice to get close enough, be quick enough with the camera, and also be keen enough without losing interest. As a result, this one filled the frame very well as it passed by just clipping the bottom field of view. Making for a very impressive display. In general; this is probably the first passable image that I could sell,...

Anyway; with the school holidays almost over. It's time to get back into the swing of work.The science labs need a good clean, and the program for the term is almost set. This term students in middle school will be relieved that I am not teaching mathematics, and teaching photography instead. However, they are going to be quite surprised that its not as easy as they may think.

Anyway; below a very good photograph of a whistling kite, with the local mountain range as the backdrop.
