Love the focused look in that birds eye. Certainly intent on pursuing something.
Very nice capture.

Thank you very much Richard. There was an insect on the grass, and he was sitting on my neighbor's TV antenna. I caught him on the way down.

Terrific flight shot Bill. That's one bird I've never seen.

Thanks, Mike. This was down at the coast about a 3 hour drive from me but I did have one right around my house about a week ago early one morning.

Love these action shots of beautiful birds.
Amazing detail and poses.
The light in the White-tailed Kite shot is very nice, shows their beautiful plumage off so well.

Stunning image. Beautiful bird.
Lovely composition.

Thank you very much for your nice comments, Mike, Paul and Richard!

Nice one Bill. Isn't funny how different they look, as soon as they take flight? :)

They can fly quite fast & erratic too!

Another wonderful shot, Shalu!

Based solely on your seemingly endless assortment of phenomenal subjects, one might easily assume you live in an avian sanctuary. Lol!!! :)

Thank you very much, Phil! I am fortunate to live in an area with various birds. Sometimes I drive a long way to get other birds too.

Terrific shot, Shalu. It looks like the young kite on the right has it's mind made up, that the field mouse belongs to him/her.
