Red Kite - East Yorkshire

Also stopped on way back from Pocklington, East Yorkshire when I noticed a lone Red Kite feasting on some fresh road kill in the middle of a quiet country road.

I slowed the car down and watched as this beautiful bird of prey settled in a near by wood. I parked the car and slowly made my way to where it was perched, it didn't take long for it to be
alerted to my presence again and off it went again into the distance, but not before circling me once - almost giving me permission to get just one shot.

I haven't got the longest of lenses but this was done on my trusty Nikon 70-200 f2.8 AF-S
VR Lens. (D300 magnification making it 300mm).

Out and About

This scene caught my eye while driving back from a job.

I felt impelled to stop the car and take some picture of some sheep who were being reflected in a flooded field in East Yorkshire whilst on my way back from a magazine job near Pocklington, East Riding of Yorkshire.

Not very often us press photographer get time to stop due to deadlines etc, so was nice to have a bit of time to spare.
