From even 500 metres distance a hunting Brahminy Kite is an awesome sight. Here is one that spent a few minutes over the Village, seeking Sparrows and Munias in flight...it has talons forward as it is about to take that tiny spot that is a small bird or a Dragonfly, and will eat it without even landing.
Here is a shot I took of a Brahminy Kite performing at a raptor show at the excellent Singapore Bird Park:
