Description

This photo was taken from a far distance with a 600mm lens so as not to disturb this active nest. I was thrilled to come upon this spectacular sight of our majestic national bird so gently feeding its newly hatched chick. From what I was told, the chick was approximately 11 days old. It is amazing how gentle they are for such a large bird. This was a once in a lifetime experience for me and I am thrilled that I was able to capture this image.
