All creatures great and small

After the relatively modestly sized visitors of yesterday afternoon, the laughing-thrushes, today’s visitor was just a little larger. Sporting a 7′ wingspan this bird drifted in on wings held in the classic V shape.

Say good afternoon to our White-bellied sea-eagle, Haliaeetus leucogaster.

Taken with a 400mm F5.6 lens, handheld. The most important thing with this shot was to get the right exposure compensation and this was EV +1  2/3.

With a black and white bird against a pale hazy blue/grey sky the histogram looks pretty darned boring!!!

Oh for some decent light! But hey, not everybody gets WBSEs over the garden coffee table so it can’t be all bad.
