Very nice Pag!! One of your best yet.


Thank you my friend, I was very lucky and very privaledged to be so close to another amazing raptor, I never thought I would get so close to a Kite - let alone near to a massive airshow.

Quite a funny tale to it - I was in a field camping for the day about half a mile away from an airshow in the uk called RIAT, there was a bit of a lull as the weather was less than great low cloud and periods of drizzle, when I saw this Kite over some trees - he/she was slowly flying closer and closer till about a few hundread feet away, I had my 300 on my body as always I said to a friend I was following a kite, he remarked that he could not see any kites (kids flying toys), I just nodded and carried on getting some amazing shots.
Thank you Kite.

Nikon D7100, Nikkor 300 f4 IF ED :-)

Look closely at the talons and you'll see a piece of chicken.
This is a juvenile the adults are having difficulty driving away.

Thx Robert, they started a project years ago to clean the waters and to reconstruct the shores down the river and now they are returning in great numbers.


A camera is a tool for learning how to see without a camera.

I envy you that photo! Nice one! I'm no expert on these, but, for what it's worth, I think your bird is a Parasitic Jaeger. It doesn't look deep chested enough for a Pomerine and darker birds like this one typically show two white underwing flashes, a big one and a smaller one.

Thanks! Yeah, I feel pretty lucky to have been that close to one. I've never even seen a jaeger before this.

Thanks for your input on the ID. The jaegers are really tough to ID!

Sometimes there are days when you get the shot(s) you missed many days, months or years before.
