2019—Determined and Menacing

Crested Caracaras are members of the Falcon family but are very unfalconlike.  They are scavengers and feed mostly on carrion and road kill.  They are also cantankerous and take their road kill meals quite seriously.  This adult Crested Caracara has just landed with a determined and menacing look. Best not to mess with this guy’s meal.

Nikon D5, Nikon 1.4 Teleconverter, Nikkor 500mm PF lens.
