Red kite
Photographer: Andrew Skinner
Location: Nr. Brecon Beacons National Park, Carmarthenshire, Wales (UK)
As several kites soured above a recently road killed rabbit, I focussed my attention on this particular individual, capturing the moment when it swooped in a tight turn. This allowed me the opportunity to capture the kite with its wings outstretched and the colour detail of the kite.
