A very regal pose of this Kite with good detail in the white feathers. A must click for better details, particularly in the dark feathers.

Very nice setting, I really like that the feathers are all ruffled up adding a bit of extra interest.

Great-looking species, I might try to raise midtones and shadows a bit.
