Desert Kite

This image was taken at Desert Park in Alice Springs, Australia. It is an animal park which houses animals found in the Australian outback. This was shot during a bird show. This particular bird was drawn back to the showground by food being thrown up to it to catch with its claws and pass up to its mouth.
