Wedgie overhead
3

This is an Australian Wedge-tailed Eagle, often referred to as a Wedgie.  Flying high over my home during a break of wind, rain and thunder, then suddenly blue sky! It was clearly out scouting to see what was available to eat.

Taken in bird mode - I didn't have time to change settings, it was either point and shoot, or miss the shot. I saw it coming towards a tree so aimed at the tree and focused, to get the bird as it came out the other side (there is a tree to the left but I've cropped it out.

Hoping to get a decent closer shot of it in flight... one day! Taken with P950.
