The thrill of being able to be this close to capture, in the wild, Australia’s magnificent, largest living bird of prey, the Wedge-tail Eagle.
Watching me from its safe vantage point in a dead tree, amongst a forest of Waddi Trees, in Outback Queensland. One of these trees is host to its nest. Those impressive eyes along with its equal powerful beak and crawls, attached to wings that can span 2.3m, are all used for its survival.
These raptures, Aquila audax, with their wedge tail giving them their name’s sake, meaning bold eagle, are in abundance in Outback Queensland.
