Red Kite 20140323-2 by FurLined Red Kite 20140323-2 by FurLined
Milvus milvus. I love watching the red kites fly - we have a local pair who roam over the village daily. Today it must have spotted some potential food near my flat as it was flying quite slow and low for long enough for me to grab my camera and get a few shots.

You may use this as stock or reference but please give credit if you do.

See another shot of this kite:

Wonderful shot, I never knew they had such cool markings on the undersides of their wings. :D

This is really clear! Perfect for stock! Did you photoshop out the sky, or was it one of those days where the sky is all covered in white clouds?

You can see a bit of blue in my other photo - it was a fairly bright day but still with a good cloud covering. With the underside of the kite not being so well lit the cloud detail had to be sacrificed :).

And that's perfectly fine! It makes it much easier to see the kite, and with the detail you achieved, I would call it a success! ^^ Its a very well taken photo Clap

Kites are one of my three fave birds.
Theyre more common than crows around here and theyre fantastic fun to feed!!

I've been out walking a few times not too far from Theale and they're a fairly common sight there. Also above a stretch of the M40 there seems to be a fair few. I'm quite used to seeing the local pair up in the sky, but I never tire of watching them fly - they're such masters! Sadly we have more crows over this way - although on occasion it's fun watching a crow get snarky with a kite as the kite just picks up a thermal and effortlessly circles gaining height until the crow eventually gives up.
