Hi folks,

 

The sunrise did not reach its highest point yet. It was 5:45 AM in the morning and I was already inside the photo hide, where I was waiting for the raptors to come down. I looked up to the dark blue sky and saw a big venue of vultures coming down. Soon, Griffon vultures and Black vultures arrived and start fighting for carrion. The Crepuscular rays didn’t cover the land yet and the dark vulture shapes were dancing in the darkness.

 

Behind the rocks a red fox appeared timidly, observing the vultures and looking for some carrion to catch. As soon as I saw the fox, all my interest was instantly focused on him. Watching a wildlife documentary is probably the closest experience to being hidden inside of a photo hide while wild animals are behaving in their own habitat.

Live in NZ and this is our native owl. Only comes out at night and has a call giving it its name 'morepork' which is what some think it sounds like ! We have two that live and sleep on our farm. Most NZ's have never seen one, only heard it. Took it with my X-T2 50-140 with the 1.4 TC. It's the reason I brought this lens
