Hi Gerhard, very nice. I remember a time when you longed for in-flight shots! I'm glad to see that they are becoming more frequent additions to your collection.
It's a very nice shot. I like the composition and the pose of the bird is very good. There is a little noise on the underside of the bird, I know this can't be your kit so I wonder if you did some shadows and highlights?
Good stuff, good news to get the green light but it's a shame you have to go back to work!

Wow, Gerhard. A splendid black-shouldered kite! One of my favorite birds amongst the birds of prey, which are my favorites. Sharp details and wonderful POV. Great job and TFS. : )
I am so happy to hear that you are on the mend. Take care. : )

An excellent in flight shot. Beautiful colors, with sharp detail. I like the composition and framing here. Your note has great truth about how we need to work harder to preserve what we have left of our natural world before we ruin it all.

It's good news about the green light,

I see I have missed some of your shots! :( Anyway, this is a great one. Sharp details and I love the composition. Empty space always works very well I think. Well done & TFS!
