I have mentioned in my comments on other peoples post that I seem to find it hard to get shots of birds of prey. That last time I visited Wilson Prom National Park I was able to start the slow process of putting that problem to bed.
As we were walking through a path of heathland a Black-Shouldered Kite popped up onto the upper branches of a tree. A few minutes of slow movement brought it within range of my lens. There have been times when I have mentioned the rain in a negative sort of way - but on this occasion the heavy great sky was a real bonus. In the flat bright light of a full sun light this bird would have been a real pain to photograph - with its white feather blowing out into over-expossed highlights. But the grey scle sky was a perfect back drop.
So, for once I'm able to post a bird of prey. Now its your turn to link to Wild Bird Wednesday.
