Magnificent. He was soaring directly over you... and looking down at you with one eye as he did! :excited:

Great shot! I tried photographing these kites in flight... most of the shots were blurry, and the sharp ones were underexposed :facepalm:

no worries, don't give up . I still go back and try for better shots of birds I already have. Some people call me mad, but I always think there is room for improvement ;-) .You have a natural talent so enjoy it ;-)

Thank you very much - we only have one kite in the UK which is this one, the red kite. I have shots of a couple of leucistic red kites which I will post another day . I haven't managed to see a Mississippi kite but have got some shots of a swallow tailed kite ;-)

yes i saw those in your gallery and they are very impressive....we have the Mississippi kites here for the summer months....they nest here as well and will chase you if they think you get too close...;) they are not very big....not as big as even a redtail hawk but they still have talons so i keep a great distance when they are nesting
