CommentPhotos give us a chance to freeze the action and really see the detail... This bird was perched on a power line next to the road, and took off just as I was about to park. I was able to leap out and take a few shots as it passed me and this one best shows the bird in flight, low and heading for something it had spotted in the scrub. This image shows the under- and upper-wing markings, and the extent of white on the chest suggests that this is an adult male.
EquipmentCanon 1Dx, Sigma 150-600mm lens; 600mm, ISO 1250, f8, 1/2000
LocationThe Neck, Bruny Island, Tasmania
