Red Kite in the rain

How/Why I Did It: 

On the way back from South Wales last month we called in to the red kite feeding centre at Gigrin Farm, Rhayader. Feeding time was spectacular - with several hundred kites wheeling round and diving in to pick up the scraps of meat that had been put out. With so many birds it was difficult to fix on individuals for a clear shot - and the weather was dull so getting a fast enough shutter speed was also challenging. These two images are from a single burst as the bird took off again. I prefer the close up despite the clipped wings but wonder what you think? It's a shame that this bird had a bright red tag!

100-400 lens @ 350 mm, ISO 1600, f/5.6, 1/1000 and 1/1600 sec.
