Wide angle Red Kite
This image was thought out a long time before achieving it. The concept is simple, a wide angle lens and a remote control.
When I saw the image on the back of the camera screen I nearly fell over! My only criticism is that I managed to chop the tips off the wings and tail feathers. I must admit I hadn't ever thought it was possible to get the kite so central in the frame, and with the bonus of other kites flying in the background.
This was also awarded the Silver Award in the Bird Photographer Of The Year competition 2017 for the 'birds in flight' category.
