Afternoon all. Not a terribly great shot but it amuses me. Tomorrow I am off to do an owl photography workshop with the same wildlife photographer that I did the Red Kites with. So I was just looking at the Kite shots, which were not very good. Everything was against me that day, the weather, the light and most of all the Kites. I was not actually focused on the birds here, but some meat left down for them, so the birds in flight are not sharp. Just thought these crows on the ground looked like they were hoping for a good punch up WinkGrin. Thanks for C&Cs on previous upload.

When you go to the owl centre take your tripod and take your time with kites and you want flight shots keep on one and follow it round dont try to get other kites hope this helps
getting back to your shot it not easy to take but you have done a great job excellent

You'll get better images this time because if what you did this time. You know some of the problems now, and the birds don't know you want pictures to show here, or they'd be really awkward.

Crows are indeed bristly creatures who enjoy an argument. Enjoy your owl trip Moira. A
