    They are indeed :) 'twas tricky to shoot this one as he consistently strove to have the sun between him and I.

    Beautiful shot, probably one of Australias most underrated birds.

    Thanks Ken, they are indeed a pretty bird, prettier than a Wedge-tailed but nowhere near as commanding.

    Probably my favorite so far. The 'Glow' on the wings do it for me :p

    I would have liked a little catchlight in the eye, but well, that's a bit hard to engineer at these distances.
