CommentThis adult Black Breasted Buzzard was simply majestic as it sat there surveying the bush. It was early morning and the light was superb. This is one of a pair that I have been observing over the past two years when I visit the area and for the first time I photographed this magnificent creature. I love this photo as it shows and symbolizes strength and pride built on an enduring and challenging past. I wasn't sure about the ruffled feathers initially but felt it added the reality for this bird and us, nothings perfect and sometimes our feathers do get a bit ruffled when striving for perfection. Although a bird, on top of a sturdy set of "shoulders" is a very regally held head and a clearly defined beak, both key to its survival in the outback areas of Australia.
