I see this bird regularly on my local beach, so look for interesting  poses. She was executing a sharp turn, interesting, I think, to see the capture of the aerodynamics, with the slotted primaries in the leading wing and full lift off the other wing. Added some canvas.

ISO1000, 400mm, f5.6, 1/4000, by Canon. The high key might be an acquired taste, but in the wet tropics a bright overcast is often the best light.

A click to bring in the dark surround really shows this one off, Greg! A great capture of the flight action of this beautiful raptor.

A "must click". Beautiful shot-really shows how this action is performed. It's a very pretty bird too-must be a delight to watch.

She is a Brahminy Kite (Haliastur indus), which I had failed to note.
