Flying up above, what do you see?

HOW lucky we are to live in such a diverse environment for spectacular scenery and some amazing wildlife.

These two Kites are some of the birds of prey you'll see on the Tweed Coast, especially in the morning or getting into the afternoon. They are a beautiful and quite common bird to see around us but in some parts of the world, they are diminishing in number.

The Chinese know these birds as "The Old Eagle” and they are making conservation efforts to protect their numbers in South-East Asia, which is good news for these guys.

To capture this image, my settings were ISO100, f/8 and 1/320 shutter speed.

When shooting wildlife, it's best to get a faster shutter speed as that will help to freeze the action but in this case, I was lucky and managed to capture a sharp image.
