Well caught. It looks like a lamb or rabbit it's fished out of the water. Normally Kites are scavengers

A wonderfully timed shot with very weird prey, typical wildlife photography - right place right time and then to make the shot count and you've done that - Ina

Another stunning capture, beautifully timed. The detail and sharpness for an inflight is second to none. If I had another award to give, this is the winner.
