Long-crested eagle


Civilisation brought a telephone pole. An ideal perch from which to observe the surrounding area.


May you have a fruitful weekend on whatever your favourite perch, is.

Great photo. Just look at those talons! Telephone poles make great nesting sites too.
Louis: Oh they do, especially for crows. Thanks Debb.

a dangerous looking eagle in a dangerous looking surrounding -but he doesn't know any danger like Sir Louis!
Louis: He only has eyes for possible prey.

Stunning capture Louis
Louis: Thank you Fred - an HDR image
mmm I miss scenes like this! H.
Louis: Shot, while on a gravel road near Bulwer. You would recognise the bird as the general area is its favourite habitat, Harry.
Extraordinary image. Louis. Congratulations.
Louis: Thank you Juan Carlos
Excellent capture Louis! A likey for me.
Louis: Wow, msieu richard!
Superb capture Louis.. such detail... i am enjoying your birds of prey very much....petersmile
Louis: Glad you like them. I like stalking them smile
Bloody Hell!!
Louis: Exactly, Graeme
What an amazing bird--so red! Nice wires, too! wink
Louis: When you see them, they are normally silhouetted, leading to the idea that they are black. Which is not true, as you saw in this picture. Thanks Larry.
Terrific shot Louis!! I love your animal shots!

Did you have to work hard to get this one, Louis?
Louis: They only frequent a part of our country that is far from where I live. But once there, in a 24hour period you will have seen one of them, with the possibility of an opportunity to take a picture.
this is a stunning image, such details at such a long range. the details really pop out against the blue sky
Louis: Thank you Ayush. Glad you like it.
