This is a great image. It display huge on my screen, making all the wonderful details of this Red Kite so beautifully visible. It is very striking and has lots of impact on the eye. The feeling/emotion in the bird's eye is very prominent. Thanks for sharing.Best regards.

The Red Kite seems to be doing well in England now, judging by your sightings in Lincolnshire!
A fine capture of this juvenile in flight, a great POV taken with fine natural colours and good clarity, though I may have been tempted to sharpen it a little.
Thanks and enjoy your weekend,

Ciao Nigel, great capture of fantastic in-flight bird on beautiful lighting BG, wonderful natural colors and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
perfect timing for this shot. The sharpness isn't completely at the top, but it's so difficult to photograph in-flight birds! I love the position and the soft background.
Very good job, Tfs, Philippe.
great image of the Red Kite
I agree that the image is a bit soft and your sharpened image in the WS is much better, sharpness is perfect but there is almost too much contrast in the workshop and the reddish feather are a bit too saturated.
I think you always have to sharpen an image when downsizing, but it is even more important to sharpen it heavily before downsizing and just a little bit after downsizing

Hello Nigel, Looks like patience paid off for you!!
Another impressive inflight image of a Red Kite, taken from a much lower POV then the first. I love the intense look it has on it's face as it searches the landscape for food. Beautiful natural colors and an attractive blurred BG. Exposure is right on the money. Well done!!

I never managed to photograph 'in flight' birds in a satisfying way when I was active, ergo I admire your work very much and add it to my theme "Juveniles"
In this image you appear to stand underneath the bird, as if it was dive bombing you, as Skua were doing us in Antarctica...
A splendid photo with many sharp details.
You must be a hardy man and enthusiastic to be belly down for hours :-)
Thanks for sharing.
Warm greetings from the Tzaneen Dam in Limpopo, South Africa
