Taken at a bird show, the handler would throw a piece of meat into the air and the Black Kite caught it every time. (4 years and 86 days ago)

For some reason, I want to turn my head sideways to view this excellent shot.

author says:

I know the feeling, when I took it, I felt it looked like it is falling. I've been told that when they catch a live bird, they stretch their wings back, lift the prey in their claws and kill it very quickly with their beak and in the process they do fall.
