Hi Jose,a great capture of this in flight kite,after my comfortable bird pics on the ground,i dream to take one like your me too...but i know how isn't easy and you're a great master in this kingdom..ehehe...great capture and great quality another time,have a good night and thanks,Luciano

Hi Jose, It is hard to capture flying bird especially they are high up in the sky. I can see you have a nice zoom lens that might have helped you to get such sharp image and of course with your proper camera exposure too. Awesome flying bird with pin sharp focus and details. Thank for sharing

An excellent use of the gear you have. Still not an easy photo to take as these birds are not that big and this one was not hovering.
