Certainly not a perfect picture (especially when looking at the beautiful birds in danob’s gallery...) but:
1) It’s my first bird of prey in_flight capture
2) The Red Kite is my favourite among the 15 species flying around in South Belgium
This week-end in Belgium, it’s the annual census of the birds in the gardens... (see HERE: Devine qui vient manger chez nous aujourd’hui ? but the weather is rainy and very windy...
Thank you very much for your comments on my previous upload:

Well done Michel not going to get a lot closer in flight for wild birds at 200mm.. Try +1 or even +2 stops of exposure compensation with backlit birds.. Spot metering can help at times also.. Great to see Red kites still doing well over there.
