[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.

PERFECTION in motion!!!

Ciao Foozi, great capture of lovely in-flight rapax and its prey, perfect focus, excellent clarity, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Great action shot and that too in flight, neighbour Foozi.
The Brahminy Kite is frozen in mid flight with clearly visible eye with a catch-light in it. The two colour tones of the wings in flight are just beautiful.
Thanks for sharing this lovely fresh image.

Impressive in flight photo Foozi! Interesting subject, perfect timing, very good composition, wonderful colours and very good sharpness

Hello Foozi,
What a remarkable capture of this beautiful Brahminy Kite who is carrying what appears to be either a snake or some type of lizard. The white head reminds me a lot of the Bald Eagle. Excellent focus and gorgeous natural coloration. A real eye catching shot Foozi!!

Hi Foozi,
I don't know where you are now, but I hope you'll return to TN once (the sooner the better...). Extraordinary photo, the shutter speed is just perfect to show details on both blacks and whites + at the same time to freeze the bird into the pic. Fabulous lights also, the kite makes beautiful contrast against the blue sky. Perfect shot! Congratulations. And I hope to see your newer work also.
Best regards, László
