Swallow-tailed Kite

The Swallow-tailed Kite is one of the most gracefull birds inflight, I could watch them soar for hours. Most of the time we only see their undersides since the fly so high, but I did manage to capture this image and thought that I would share it with you. Image captured while visiting Lake Louisa State Park, Florida, in June. This is a large image so I am posting a framed and unframed version.
