"DIVE TO KILL", BY PETER SCHEUFLER; WINNER, 'BIRDS OF AFRICA BEHAVIOURAL'.
"We were on a safari to Chobe, watching huge colonies of carmine bee-eaters. Every now and then they flew off in panic as a yellow-billed kite appeared. The carmines are fast and there were many of them, making it difficult for predatory birds to concentrate on a single target. It was a challenge to get good shots of the attacking kites. This kite flew over me, starting a dive down to the river bank with a steep turn focussing on the carmines."
