A White-tailed Kite dives repeatedly at a Red-tailed Hawk. Tail envy? More likely, not wanting a predator near the nest (??) I captured these two images during a birding transect. My interest in bird behavior overruled my scruples as a quality photographer in this case. Please do not use these images if you want image quality. More interesting images, macros, from today are in "Adventures on a Smaller Scale".
