Red Kite diving

By rontear  
Just back from the Brecon Beacons celebrating our 60th birthdaysGrin We climbed Pen Y Fan and visited Gigrin farm amongst what we did during our visit. This Red Kite is just one of a success story of these fantastic birds. Trying something different in the vertical format and inclision of a wing on purpose.

Belated birthday greetings to you both. As we used to live very close to Gigrin Farm before we moved to Wales I know just what an amazing place it is. We see red kites up here too, nowhere near as many, of course, but they are very beautiful birds. Love the diving kite in this image. Not sure I understand the inclusion of the wing bottom left, but I totally respect your decision to leave it in Smile
