Brahminy kite

By Karuma1970
Like many kites you can often see more than one of them patrolling areas looking for small mammals and reptiles. On the backwaters of Kerala we saw one snatch a long snake out of the water. I did get a photo of it but it's a long skinny snake and I find I have to point out that that is indeed what it is (you can see the head if you look carefully) so I decided to go with this instead.

An extraordinary photo and capture, Mike. The blue talons are quite something.
