Hi Jose,spectacular flight of this black kite in the nesting moment,great timing and impressive quality despite the difficult light,some part is in the shadow but the result is great! Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Hi Jose
nice one, but definetely underexposed. I tried a WS, you can see that morning light is great indeed with quite fine direct light to underwing and body

Hello Jose

You have a great luck to see and shoot in photo different species of birds of prey,
great in-flight capture with nesting materials on his claws, your POV and the framing
with very good free space in front of the Kite with its flight pose it gives
a great dynamism to the image, TFS


Hello Jose,
Beautiful picture of this flying Black Kite. Very nice POV. I like the way this kite is carrying a dry branch and you were in the right place(although inside car) to show us this natural phenomenon.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice WE,

hallo Jose

very nice to see this
good sharpness and lovely colours
thanks gr lou

Hi Jose,
Nice flight image of black kite while carrying nesting materials.


Hello Jose,
Brilliant capture....Very nice image. The exposure is perfect. I like this interesting scene with a lovely specie in flight.
Thanks for sharing!

Bonjour Jose,
Cette série est, pour l'instant, remarquable par la qualité des photos publiées et par l'intérêt que suscite les scènes restituées.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
