This shot of a Red Kite in flight was taken from the hide at Gigrin Farm, Powys, Wales by Kelvin Dean.

Kelvin used a Canon EOS 300d with a 300mm Sigma lens doubled up with a 2x converter, and taken at f6.3 iso 400, 1/2000s.

The camera was hand held, so it was a lucky shot considering the 600mm focal length, but as Kelvin said, it can be very tricky to follow the birds in flight using a tripod.
