Not my best shot, it was difficult focusing threw the branches had to go manual and my eyes aren't what they used to be.
But I know where he lives now so there's always the opportunity for improvement .

Red kite. This shot was taken near a tree full of crows. The crows had been fighting amongst each other the whole time, until this kite appeared, giving them a common enemy. They then teamed up and started harassing the kite instead.

The kite wasn't really impressed though. He first climbed a bit higher and then dove down, reversing the roles and chasing after the crows himself now. The crows kept a bit more distance afterwards. (Well, at least for a little while. When the kite returned later that day, they started harassing him again.  :) ) All in all, it was quite a show, and what a beautiful bird!

Hopefully the new 100-400 will not be beyond $2500!
Going by Nikon's pricing of almost $2700 for their 80-400 VR, I think we should consider ourselves very lucky if the new 100-400 L is anything less than $2800. :(

Good shots! Is the shot of the eagle a 100% crop?

Thanks RPT, eagle is not 100% crop. Luckily i was close to eagle, it is around 25%.
