Like an eagle…
It’s late, I’m tired, it’s cold and really should be in bed. (Long day mustering, preg-testing and innoculating cows – you can thank me later for going easy on the pics!)
But I HAD to share one photo with you.
I took it yesterday (Sunday) as I went to shoot my cousin’s baby. (With a CAMERA, silly). Got some fun shots there, which I may share if I get permission from the parents…
However THIS one (taken en route to visiting with Tom and Nell and Prue) gave me SUCH a thrill.
It only took a minute, for something I would normally have driven past, thinking I was in too much of a hurry to stuff around. (And I usually am.) I saw this big guy fly from the roadside (obviously from feasting on some roadkill) and up into a tree about 50 metres away.
I eased the car forward and took this pic.
But sometimes, it pays to look. To WAIT for the shot. And as I nudged the car slowly, slowly closer and he set himself to take off, I held the shutter down and prayed…
My very favourite bird in the whole, wide world.
AND in focus.
These are the things that give me a thrill.
Hope you enjoyed it too.
