Re: Red Kite Dogfight

Here is one of them feeding in a tree (after the sun and blue sky was gone!) 100 yards away. Whatever it kept biting at was too small to see. Images cropped by ca one third.

EM-1, Olympus 4.3 x2 TC, Olympus 4/3 70-300mm at 300mm (overall 35mm equivalent 1,200mm),1/30 f11, ISO 800, hand-held.

"... when the kite builds, look to lesser linen"

Shaks.

Apparently kites have been known to take 'smalls' off washing lines for nest building!

Re: Red Kite Dogfight

Today I got a shot of a stage of this, although not the inverted bit. I hadto frame loosely, as they circle around a lot. So a strong crop.

I can't access my Topaz Photoshop plug-ins so I used the Nik ones.

I had the Oly 4/3 70-300mm at about 150mm on the x2TC, so 300mm or so in effect.
