Red Kites

Spent a few days this week in Princes Risborough, Buckinghamshire for my mum's birthday. As usual there were plenty of Red Kites around, 18 was the most at anyone time seen from her garden. I went along and watched my nephew's sports day and there were 7 Red Kites on view throughout! and well done Curt, he won both his races.

Had another go at photographing them, but still can't quite get the sharp image I'm after, my efforts are below.









Found this Scarlet Tiger moth one evening, it would briefly show it's brilliantly coloured scarlet underwings and abdomenn, but never when I clicked the shutter!
