Milhafre-preto, Black kite (Milvus migrans)

Hello TN Friends!

Today I post another picture of the black kites.Now with the chicks growing they have to hunt all day.After seeing them fishing I had the idea to offer some fish...
With time and patience I think I'll reach to have a documentary about the life of this species.
Picture taken from the car.

Have a good Sunday and thanks for viewing ...

Hello Jose,
How cool of a shot is this!! To capture a predator with it's prey is quite an accomplishment in itself, and this one is tac sharp. I love the way the bird is looking down at the fish as if to reassure it has a good grip on it. Excellent detail and beautiful colors. Exposure is right on the money. Well done!!

Ciao Jose, great capture of fantastic in-flight rapax and its prey, perfect focus, fine detailswonderful natural colors, splendid light and excellent sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
