Taken earlier today at Gigrin Farm, Rhayader. Decided at the last minute to do the 4 hour round trip - and it was worth it today. The kites were in good number - as were the buzzards - and the weather & light were very kind to us.

Thanks for the C&C's on my last upload - appreciated as always.

Take care, Lou

A fantastic image! I never know when to find them! It took me months to get a shot of a kite, about the fith time I had seen him since spring. You mustvhavevstudied their habits really well to get such a great shot.
