Agree Peter. #2 might not be the best shot but it is sure fascinating.

Good photography is about telling a story - and what a story you've told!

They are both classics - #2 particularly so. Maybe a square crop and a suitable border would sort #2 from the technical perspective? Regardless, that shot would be a lifetime keeper for me if I had taken it.

Wow - I go out for a few hours and we've got a new thread! I think we need to petition for a "bird" subforum..... only kidding guys .

Anyway - T.T., that's great light on the bird. I love the "leaf" pattern through his feathers. It almost looks like a studio shot. I just had dinner, so won't comment on the gore .

Brandy, like Cam said - the angles are awkward on the bird, but then it is an awkward bird - good timing getting the "catch".

"Did you order the fish Sir?"

"Of course our fish is fresh, why do you ask?"

Red kites shot at Bwlch Nant yr Arian, a park/nature reserve in West Wales. The kites were almost wiped out in the UK but brought back from the brink by a long running protection programme. The birds in these photos are wild but fed daily with raw meat scraps so have learned to arrive for lunch every day at 2pm.

Sony A700, Sigma EX 100-300 F4, Sigma EX 1.4x TC. EXIF intact but aperture and focal length uncorrected by TC.
