Brett, thank you Mate. I've posted this eagle and its mate before in the seasonal weather images threads, but they have always been hundreds of metres away and a nice addition to a weather event. It was good to see the bird up close at last, relatively speaking and only about 50 metres away.

Here are two of the shots that I posted earlier from the Winter of 2015. Snowing in the upper reaches of Condor Creek ACT and a snowy Tidbinbilla Range ACT.

Fantastic photos Warren. I was privileged enough to see a wedge-tailed eagle hunting its prey (a flock of birds, cockatoos and Ibis I think) over our property several weeks ago. Something I've only seen a few times previously, and although the eagle was not successful, the speed and power was absolutely amazing and something I will not soon forget.

Here is a much smaller bird of prey, a very friendly kestrel who has been a common sight in our yard for several years.
