Birds of prey
Hi Annick and Happy Christmas to you also. I hope the new year brings you (and therefore us too) more great photos. I always look forward to your next post.
I am very impressed that evaluative metering did so well with these dark birds against the sky. Three is always an effective number in a composition.

I can't be sure of the species, I am not so familiar with the area and the raptors around. But the scene you captured is great.

I would be thrilled to see just one of these birds of prey and you found a trio! The poses are wonderful atop the trees - especially the one trying out his wings. Excellent colors, clarity and composition. I wish you a very Merry Christmas.

Zo, de familie is weg, dus nog even tijd voor foto's. En nog een leuke uitdaging om de juiste soort te vinden. Je hebt gelijk wat betreft de identificatie, maar het zijn niet echt jongen meer, want ze hebben al de gele snavel. Het is de Milvus migrans aegyptius, The Black Kite ofwel Yellow-billed Kite. (Zwarte Wouw)
Een prachtige foto in alle opzichten. Toppertje!!!
Nog een goede en gezellige Tweede Kerstdag,

Great capture of the African subspecies of the Black Kite, the Yellow-billed. You took these three in a fine composition on the thorn tree with fine poses, including the one stretching its wings.
Nice sharpness and light management too.
TFS and best wishes,
