CommentWe were fortunate this beauty, with his Piglet prey, flew across in front of our car on the Gwydir Highway & rested on a dead tree beside the highway. He/she stood there very regally for a brief couple of minutes, balancing with its powerful right talons & holding its prey with its left talons -just enough time to stop the car & quietly sneak up & capture a few shots.
One less wild pig the farmers nearby have to worry about.
EquipmentNikon D90, Nikor 55-300 lens, hand held. ISO 500, f/11, 1/1250, 300mms. Cropped & edited in Photos on my Mac.
LocationBetween Collarenibri & Moree on the Gwydir Highway. (New South Wales)
