The Duel…

by on Feb.12, 2014, under Life, Photography

Shot handheld with the Sigma 50-500, from the street in front of my parents house :). I don’t shoot birds in flight very often but when they are readily at hand…

This Eagle and a Magpie duelling in the sky – I know this might look like a composite but this is a single shot as the birds passed as the magpie swooped at the eagle (I know you were thinking that the eagle was trying to take out the smaller magpie but in this battle the maggie won and the eagle was the one escaping to open skies)

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.
