On The Way Home

We had visited these spectacular birds of prey once before, but without a camera. So on the way back from the bird walk with camera in hand, we decided to stop, hoping for a few good shots. Aidan and I worked together as a team - I manned the camera, and he walked towards the nest (which the bird found quite disturbing... interestingly enough, we switched rolls and nothing happened... I guess "Mommies" are kindred spirits).

Wings outstretched

Notice the partly eaten fish in its talons.

Swooping back in for a landing.

What regal birds!!!

Just as we were leaving, we spotted the partner keeping an eye on things from a tree nearby.
