Default Black Kite series

I hope you like this selection. Black and Brahminy kites were fishing both in the sea and on the lagoon at Neeleshwar. They did not get on harmoniously with the Sea Eagles as you can see, apparently the eagle can suddenly flip onto its back and grab smaller birds which are mobbing it!

Best regards
Ricky

That perches in the soul
It sings the song without the words
And never stops.....at all

The face of the perched bird is very captivating. GREAT action series, but would sure love to see more shot in better lighting conditions. Beautiful bird!

Thanks John, there are quite a few shadowy areas and to be honest I almost did not post this series but felt that the behaviour shots and the first in flight shots made it potentially interesting.

Best regards,
Ricky
