Crested Hawk

This shot was taken at the Royal National Park in December 2008.

The creted hawk is also known as the "Pacific Baza". Click here for more information.

I visited the park with the aim of capturing images of an Azure kingfisher (see image here). While waiting for the Kingfisher to make an appearance I noticed this hawk flying along the opposite bank of the stream. Getting a clear shot of the raptor was virtually impossible as it was darting in and out of the bush. It finally settled on a tree overhead after catching a frog.

See the techs of this shot here.
