A Yellow Billed Kite in the rain sitting atop what looks to be an old grave stone V2. We had just been caught in a shower and this Kite decided he would sit it out. Can't blame him.
I had a request for more Birds of Prey so here you are. I do hope you like him.
Many thanks for all your continuing comments and votes they are very much appreciated and especially as I am unable to leave as many as I wish on your photo's due to my increasing workload.
Steve.

ps I hope you like this Jason.

Absolutely wonderful threesome! The feather details are truly awsome. So love V2 with those few raindrops also in view and that long-suffering look over the shoulder asking "Please, someone switch it off!".
