Great picture. Is this local to you? You have eagles flying around Hercules? I need to pay you a visit.

Great framing, but the sharpness is lacking. You should try a faster exposure

Only ever see these guys running away in dense forest. The road is not the best setting but at last i got a clear shot of a whole bird.

I prefer to be in the bush with the animals than a crowded city.

Nah, wrong Country. It's a Lyrebird. Lives in dense forest.
