p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · White-tailed kite action


For many years I have been trying to capture interaction between white-tailed kites. Although I have some frames, there were mostly from too far and without the critical IQ. Today I was finally able to capture some frames that I like and will keep. Below in one frame I wanted to share, the top bird is an adult while the lower one is a juvenile, it is the only sequence with both adult and juvenile in one frame. These kites are extremely skittish and their small size makes them even more difficult to photograph in the wild.

Nikon D850, 600 F/4 E FL + TC14E-III. ISO 640, 1/3200sec at f/5.6 hand held. processed with Capture One Pro 11. Hope you like it as well

Wow, what a great image! Terrific interaction between the birds, and they are both in perfect focus wing tip to wing tip. The light is beautiful.

Great image Arash....all I keep seeing of these kites is interactions against white or blue sky. Having a proper background takes this image up many notches.

Awesome shot Arash of beautiful kites. Love to see the vertical crop as well. I am sure you have some room for a vertical crop.

Thanks,
