Some Kites looked for mice while farmers made hay. Photographed in Germany.

A Classic! Super shot Axel! Was at first wondering where you had found this and then saw the "in Germany" bit. Nicely done.
Make your life spectacular!

Very nice hunting pose in great light. Vertical crop works well.

Lovely capture - moving or threshing of meadows is usually a good opportunity to photograph these large raptors - well done.

Beautiful shot of this wonderful bird, Axel! Since they were reintroduced in the UK there are so many places to see them, I used to live in Buckinghamshire near the Chiltern Hills, and they were everywhere. They also have a stronghold in Wales and Scotland. I love them.
