Australia wedge-tailed eagle

At the centre of this beautifully composed design, a female wedge-tailed eagle with meticulously observed plumage is seen stooping towards her offspring with maternal concern.

Her airborne mate, with his powerful wings fully extended, shows off the distinctive wedge-shaped tail from which the species takes its name.
