"Black Kite" in flight lunch

By mrsvee
Hi, Everyone.

Here is another one from my Goa, Indian Holiday.
This time it is a Black Kite with a fish in his talons, it is eating it in flight.
There were lots of birds of prey, but they were difficult to capture, this was probably my best one.
Thank you for your votes & comments on my Heron.

The black kite is an excellent subject for a photograph. Mind you, having said that, I don't think the fish wanted to be in the picture! You have done well to capture the bird in mid-flight and mid-bite.

Technically speaking, I think you may have oversharpened the image, because there is a white outline to the kite. But, then again,I shouldn't speak technically because I don't really know what I'm talking about.

I got one similar at Gigrin farm of a Red Kite, mine was poor but sort of likeable, maybe I will upload it one day.
You did well to get this Vee.
