Wedge-tailed Eagle.
I think this one is a juvenile.
Adults are reported to have a wingspan up to 2.8m.
Always happy to be able to get a reasonable shot of one of these, as they are often too high, or adults too dark, to get any detail.

K-3 II, DFA 150-450 + 1.4x TC, handheld. See exif for shot details.

Cheers,
Terry

Great shot of the Dotterel, they're such a tiny bird but you'd never guess it from that shot.

Thank you so much! Your photos are exquisite. I was looking at your exif info. I gained some new information to try on my next shoot. I will probably look into the 1.4 teleconverter as well. Bill

Thanks.
yes, they are tiny and the shot was cropped quite a bit. They are very hard to get close to unless you have some good cover.
Problem is that where I shot this bloke there are also White-headed Stilts and they have a severe complex...can't get within cooee without them taking off, voicing loudly and diving on me. All the other birds note the alarm!

Cheers,
Terry

Wow! I wonder if the improved AF on the K3II makes BIF easier?

BIF (Bat in Flight). Grey-headed Flying Fox. Yes, I know the wing is cut off, but it was the sharpest image. More time and effort required!
