Captured the Red Kite in Flight again!

Today I managed to capture the "Red Kite" in flight again. This is a free Bird not captive, so a little hard to get :Crunk:
He made exactly one pass over me, then started circling much higher and away :redface:

Shot handheld with the 70-200VR + 1.4xKenko (1/500s f/8.0 at 280.0mm iso500)

He was circling the area while obviously looking for prey. Shot at "High Noon", sun behind him to the right (that's why the edge is a little bright). Sorry for the lighting....little I could do about it.

Thanks for looking! C&C appreciated.

280mm? :eek: That was close. What a nice bird. I can show you tons of sparrow and hooded crow shots, but a red kite? Cooool.

I was wondering whether the contrast might be a tad to high, just a thought.
