Bingley Show - Such a beautiful bird... this red kite and its handler seemed very much in tune. I took several photos whilst they did an interview for the local radio station but this shot, in repose, was my favourite of them all. The falconry display was by SMJ Falconry, based in Oxenhope. They had a number of hawks and owls with them but this red kite was the star of the show for me.


  1. It's a beautiful kite, and they both look deep in contemplation :)

    Wonderful shot!

  2. You got wonderful details in the feathers, Jenny!

  3. You are right. They both seem to be resting and enjoying each other's company.

  4. Kites are such beautiful birds and we see them quite often around here these days. They're a glorious sight when the effortlessly adjust their position by angling their tail against the wind.
