A truly fantastic capture - I wouldn't have been able to capture this, as I would have been stood in amazement, just witnessing what was happening :O
It is such a powerful image, enhanced bt the contrast in bird feather colouring, but also because of the eye detail of the Black-shouldered Kite.
Well done with this Danny, enjoy the festive season.

This is what wildlife photography is all about; capturing that unplanned moment, whether it be a 'pretty scene or not so pretty', just as it happens!

The intensity of the Kites' red eye, along with the grip from the Kestrel (even its opened mouth) adds to the powerful dynamics of this wildlife image. A gem of a shot! Congratulations, Danny!
