Milvus migrans
Black kite

This fhoto was taken in Gaziantep last month.
Best regards..

The Black Kite (Milvus migrans) is a medium-sized bird of prey in the family Accipitridae, which also includes many other diurnal raptors. Unlike others of the group, they are opportunistic hunters and are more likely to scavenge. They spend a lot of time soaring and gliding in thermals in search of food. Their angled wing and distinctive forked tail make them easy to identify. This kite is widely distributed through the temperate and tropical parts of Eurasia and parts of Australasia, with the temperate region populations tending to be migratory. Several subspecies are recognized and formerly with their own English names. The European populations are small, but the South Asian population is very large.

Hello Huseyin,

Hallo Huseyin
Good use of light is what I consider to be my favourite part in this image. The sunlight here is just great as it lightens up everything in the image. The Black kite is a striking bird and you captured it in a perfect diving position in the sky. The details of the plumage is extraordinary and so beautiful to look at. Thanks for sharing this lovely image. Best regards.
