Kite Flying.......

Hi all

Managed to get out and about yesterday and get some images of the beautiful Red Kite, such an amazing bird and wonderful to see the re introduction programs working so well. The last time i photographed Red Kites was a long while back when i had a film camera and a manual focus lens!!!!! i must say its a lot easier with digital and fast autofocus lenses.....although out of nearly 8GB worth of images, there is only a handful i am happy with, perhaps im just hard to please!

Anyway i will be going back soon and have an image in mind i am after, in the mean time i hope you enjoy these shots.

All taken on a Nikon D300 with Sigma 500mm lens, shot in RAW, ISO 200-800
