Black Shouldered Kites

I had seen this kite a number of times over a couple of hours but I couldn't get near it for a decent shot.  I finally got him without realising he had a mouse until I started to edit the photo.  It was one of those days with overcast skies, late afternoon and the bird wouldn't turn around.

The last image was another kite with blue skies and quite happy to cooperate.


They are a beautiful raptor .... you did well with that end result of pics on a cloudy day. Looks stunning in that last one with the blue sky.

It is a pain when they won't cooperate but least one of them did for you. I's amazing how many times I see something later on that I didn't notice when I was taking the picture.
