CommentI was heading home after an early rise to look for birds when suddenly I rounded the last bend and saw this magnificent raptor sitting on a fence post next to the road. I slowed immediately and slid down the window. Holding my breath, I grabbed my camera and pointed it out the window. Fortunately it sat there just long enough for me to grab a couple of close up shots before it flew off. It was a dream interaction after a lack lustre morning, given the difficulty in obtaining close up shots of a wild wedgetail.
