[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The brahminy kite (Haliastur indus) also known as the red-backed sea-eagle in Australia, is a medium-sized bird of prey in the family Accipitridae, which also includes many other diurnal raptors, such as eagles, buzzards, and harriers. They are found in the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia, and Australia. They are found mainly on the coast and in inland wetlands where they feed on dead fish and other prey. Adults have a reddish brown plumage and a contrasting white head and breast which makes them easy to distinguish from other birds of prey.

Hello Pierre,
An attractive close-up image of this beautiful Brahminy Kite. The facial area displays good detail and natural color. A tad more DOF would also bring the breast into sharp focus. I like the contrasting chocolate and white colors in it's plumage. Wonderful eye contact and nice vertical composition. You managed the exposure quite well considering the harsh lighting you had to deal with.
