Default Black shouldered Kite

Another series with both captive (rehabilitation centre) and wild birds. I have yet to nail a bird coming directly toward me....at least you can make out that its a bird!

Best regards
Ricky

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