Congratulations this week goes to Ray Walkers image of a very stately looking Whistling Kite. Well done Ray, you have certainly come a long way since joining the site

Heres what some of you had to say about the winning image

I like it.

Easily Ray's best shot on this site. An Excellent image.

A winner all over, the eye contact is superb and drags you into the bird. The perch and detail is amazing.

Detail and control of exposure are fantastic!!
