I have tried to capture the Kites for some time, but they usually dissapear to the horizon when i appear. This time this pair were just too busy, swooping, soaring and diving between the trees surrounding last years nest. The weather was very unsettled, ranging from dull to nearly half decent but i managed to get a few shots
