Black Kite

By Lillian  
This beauty was taken again in France, having just demolished lunch
was an honour to watch him/her before he flew
Sorry to those of you already commented this was a captive bird
without jessies in the Flamingo Park

Hope that you like this one, as one of my favourites of the day, and so rare to get

Thanks for stopping by for the mating FlamingosBlush

Enjoy the day

Lillian

Fantastic details. Great image, even though I have to confess to not being any fan of raptors! (You can put that down to too many visits by the local Sparrowhawk to the bird feeders in the grounds of my garden!)

Outstanding capture of the Kite Lillian. Raptors are my all time favourite class of birds and you have done real justice to this one. Superb exposure and sharp as a new pin. A cracker.
