No reason or ability to explain but only processed the Raw File minutes ago.  

Another Gigrin Farm image, taken in October in Powys, Wales.  Techs Nikon 500 AFS-II and 1.4.  1/1600 F5.6 at ISO 800. Plopped the 1.4 on to get the birds further away. 

Please feel free to view uncompressed.  Thank you for looking and hope all safe.

A beauty, Dave. Love the placement allowing the Kite to fly into space. Topside detail is excellent. Great shot.

We get these beauties over our house every day, but its not quite the same photographing them over the rooftops! Another superb image of these gorgeous birds, Dave.

Thank you all for your kind words and thoughts. (know what you mean Carol. Just started to get them here in the south, but last year was barely 3-4 sightings. We do though, get plenty of Sea Kites... new name for Seagulls..LOL)
