This whistling kite is chasing a heron, whose caught a fish. The kite is a superb acrobat and is following the heron very closely, trying to force the heron to drop it. The site for this shot was Bird Billabong near the Mary River in the NT of Australia. It’s a bit of a hike to get to, so take lots of water and expect to sweat a lot.

During the actual shot sweat was dripping off my brow into my eyes, and the sting of sweat on the eyeball was a nasty distraction. It took a lot of concentration to keep the camera following the birds as they swooped over the water.
