Black-shouldered Kite juvenile in the late afternoon sun

I have been watching some Black-shouldered Kites on my walk with my dog in the Larapinta Hills for a couple of months now. The adult pair have raised a couple of chicks who are now hunting by themselves. The parents are still hanging around, but on the whole have left their young to fend for themselves. The colour has almost disappeared from the juvenile's, those beautiful rufous bands are disappearing, replaced by the pure white of adulthood.

Here are some photos of one of the juveniles with the afternoon sun behind:
