  1. I haven’t had too many times in life to see this exquisite bird, but when I do it’s a great treat. Your photo perfectly highlights the swallow tail, HJ. Really lovely, thank you.

    • This kite knew I was taking pictures. Very smartly used a trick that raptors often do: To hide from sight using the sun behind their backs that makes them impossible to see with the sun on your eyes. I had to move constantly and wait when they fly in circles. Good thing that I picked up on his skill. Thank you so much, Jet. 🙂
