…well so they say… but only until crunch time. The Brown Falcon is not a popular fellow in the aussie bush so many birds do their best to distract and annoy them, here we have an Australian Pee Wee playing chicken with this falcon near Greenethorpe NSW Australia.
Canon 40d, Sigma 170-500mm.

I love photography and especially bird photography which is one of the most challenging and beautiful of subjects. Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I had taking them.

    That lens has a great DOF Mate. I am sure that this is your pet Falcon. Well done.

  • Thanks again mate. There are plenty of these guys around here and approached carefully can be accommodating. This sigma lens performs reasonably well in bright light, but that’s about all I’m afraid.
