Red Kite Diving

high speed birds of prey red kite


Dave Murray, 2014

Red Kite Diving

Red kite in a full vertical dive. Full wing span is circa 5 1/2 feet. Full weight is circa 2 pounds. Red kites spend the majority of their time floating on the thermals but dive down and swoop along the ground to pick up food. Their diet is almost exclusively carrion. I shot this image at 1/2000 of a second. It was taken in Henley-on-Thames, England.

    intensity captured!
