A Red Kite harassing a Common Buzzard for the morsel of food it's carrying. The Buzzard was gulping it's food down as fast as it could Smile
They were quite high when this was taken so it's a fairly severe crop to about 15% of full frame.
Lighting was good due to a covering of snow which acted as a fantastic reflector.

Amazing wildlife photography!

For a wildlife shot, this shows behaviour & it enables the viewer to see the difference in size including the difference of head & tail, also it shows how similar the wings are shaped including similarity of wing markings.

A great image taken at a perfect angle with great lighting!

For the size of the Kite, its feet are much smaller than the Buzzard

An absolute stunning image. Shows perfectly the comparison in flight of both birds. Extremely well captured.
