Australian Kite

I took at least one hundred flight shots of this bird. Some were ok, some great. The light came and went. The pics I took after this one were the best. The bird swooped, caught a mouse in the shrubs, flew off with it, landed, coughed up a huge "furball" and spat it out, glared at me (mouse was in clear view - light was great), flew off to eat its catch. Tragically I accidentally deleted all those shots when I was downloading them from the camera. I am sad!!! :-(

ok viewed large! View On Black
