[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These juveniles are very often confused with other species such as Booted Eagle. These magnificent birds are quite adept at fishing and they can live on garbage also.. These juveniles will get white colour upto the base of the neck and a maroon shade over rest of the body, upon reaching adulthood.

Hi Biju,
nice work with this bird flying. Good, POV, focus and blur BG. Good note also.
The only thing that I donīt like is the copyright just over the bird...

Hallo Biju
Great details captured of this juvenile's wingspan, it sure is impressive. I like the variety of colours of the plumage shown so beautifully. I also like the details of the muscles seen in the upper leg and the muscular built of this bird. As an adult is surely will be a striking creature. I find your 3 layered background very pleasing. The only tiny nit I have is your copyright mark right in the middle of the frame. Is it at all possible to move it to the corner where it will not be written across the object itself? Just asking, as in my personal opinion it spoils the beautiful feathers of the bird in this specific posting. Other than that, this is a great motion shot. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Biju,

Excellent shot of this Juvenile Brahminy Kite, they are a faviourate subject of mine down at the port of brisbane, wonderful detail, beuatiful colours, really nice work. As Anna mentioned perhaps moving the copyright logo to lower left or right would be better other then that keep up the great work, look forward to seeing more, all the best,

Cheers Rick :)
