6.3.10 Swallow Tailed Kite

I’ve seen these large raptors soaring overhead many times….as I walked out the back door one was right over head…but by the time I got the camera they were in the distance and this was all I was able to get.

I’ll keep trying…they are beautiful birds and a lot of fun to watch while they ride the thermals.

  4. All the big raptors are so hard to get closeup shots of, but it is very interesting to watch them gliding around and playing in the currents of air. Hopefully one day you'll be in the right spot at the right time and capture one of these guys close up.
