    Had a ride up to Scotland for the day to see photograph some Red Kites at the Laureston Red Kite Feeding Station. It was a 270 mile round trip but it was worth it:D.

    All taken with 400mm lens at f5.6, iso between 200 - 400, Aperture Priority, Centre focus point and AI Servo.




    Uncropped shot to show how close they are.

    This one was so close I couldn't fit all the wings in so I cropped it to make it a bit better composition.

    Great job Glen! I like the second best. It seems to tell a story there. But the detail in the closeup is a tight second IMO. Thanks for letting me see these.
