Red Kite

Shot Details: Nikon D90 with Nikkor 300mm f2.8 lens @ f2.8 1/320sec ISO1200
Location:Gigrin Farm, Rhayader, Powys, Mid Wales.

Taken at Gigrin Farm, Rhayader, Mid Wales on an extremely cold and dull day. Shots against the sky were producing nothing much better than silhouettes against a grey, featureless background. This was taken against the trees and required panning to freeze the action at the low shutter speed. Failure rate was very high and this was the best of the day. I think the out of focus background and blurred wingtips gives the image plenty of energy and movement.
