I like the straight -on stare! Great expression and an interesting perch. She looks kind of sweet. :)

What a beautiful bird and image, Jake! I wish we could see a close up of that wonderful face, and those captivating eyes.

Me too but this is as close as I could get in the boat and she was busy feeding and taking snail meat back to the nest.  My gear was limited to 540mm so I got what I could.

Jake, Nice photo of the Kite. Large version shows more detail and better light.

I appreciate the limitations, Jake, especially when you have to stay a certain distance from their nest sites.
