Award Shortlist   


By bzbee  
This bird is in training for falconry displays. In the wild, it catches insects and eats them on the wing, so to simulate that, a piece of meat is hurled into its flight path. It looks very surprised to have caught it and in fact looks as though its going to bowl it back. This is a young yellow-billed kite

It's not just the spectacular way it stands out from the white background it's also the amazing expression on its face.

phenomenal shot...shots that capture a creature in motion & in an unusual pose (IMHO) set wildlife photos apart & raise the bar
