I even wrote them to learn what they feed their Kites.

No I have heard of the place.

This is a wild bird at a falconry centre; they but some bait down at the end of the day and you see what comes in from a hide.

Kites are not that uncommon in the UK now, we can get to see them in a lot of places, not always quite so close though.

Love them all !! Maybe someday we can come to Wales to see these raptors. I know Poof would want to see so much more than just the birds--bet she have to pry me
away from the raptor center.

I shot this the other day and in looking at it I was a little disappointed that his wings were blurry. But I got to thinking (an always dangerous situation)......well, maybe his wings should be blurry. After all, he was flying and isn't this kind of like when we shoot a screw driven airplane we always want a nice prop blur?

So.....there ya go.....birdie prop blur.  :p
