western white tailed kite has lunch with a mouse

I shot these near my house a couple days ago. The kites are kind of a permanent fixture there, which I love. A lot of Red Shoulder Hawks, some kestrels, and occasional other raptors hunt here, in the American River Parkway. Makes for good birding. I even took a 4 hour workshop yesterday on 'bird communication'. Hoping it'll help me get better shots, but what I really need is bigger glass. These are cropped, taken with a Canon 7D and a 70-200 f4/IS + a 1.4x extender. I see and shoot a lot of kites, but I hadn't really captured the true beauty of one yanking and flinging the juicy guts from a mouse (may its soul RIP) this well before.
