Looking through my Red Kite shots from sometime ago they all had very bright skies and so I have put them to one side....today whilst I was bored I have enhanced the shots with a sky from another time......too obvious I know but I kinda like it.

I'm not above doing that myself. Birds in flight are exciting, difficult and worthwhile subjects. They just don't always fly where you want them. The original of the bird was great, where ever you subsequently show it off.

I love the kite - clear, colourful and ...majestic. Replacing a boring sky is artistic licence.
