Of Prey

Of Prey

I recently had a chance to visit the Healesville Sanctuary, just outside of Melbourne. The centre-piece being the ‘Birds of Prey’ showcase. This is a shot of Australia’s biggest bird of prey – the Wedge-tailed Eagle. It’s the size of a small child.

Crop, rotate, shadow/highlight, sharpen, vignette, levels/curves.
