Red Kites

By TheShaker
This was taken during feeding time at the Bwlch Nant Yr Arian red kite feeding station, four kites after the same bit of feed. Unfortunately for me it was rather dark, in fact raining some of the time, and with a fast shutter speed the ISO needed was so high that the details of the birds are lost in a heavy crop. I halved the shutter speed for this one, and with the birds all in one plane I think they are just about all in focus. Four in the frame helps preserve the detail too!
