Wedge-tailed Eagle allows camera up close

Wedge-tailed Eagles are big. They look big from 100 metres. Much bigger from 13m, the distance one allowed me to walk within at the southwestern end of the Ross River dam wall the other day.

Pity the confidingness didn't include looking at me or the camera lens. Another close encounter on another day perhaps.
