…morning light is magic…

Kite Action

Make my second trip to see the Swallow-tailed Kites in Dayton, TX this morning.  Found one in the usual location but this time he was sitting at the top of a tree.  He dove off of the tree and soared around and eventually caught up with another Kite.  Tried to catch him going past the moon but just missed it.

Taken with Canon 1DX and Canon 500mm F4 IS II with 1.4X III teleconverter mounted on tripod

1/1250 sec @ F9, ISO 800, evaluative metering, +2/3 exposure compensation

  1. I don’t think you missed it at all. That moon shot is wonderful framed nicely with the trees.

    • Thanks Stephen. Appreciate your feedback. I had to opportunity to have him flying right in front of the moon when it was up higher than the trees but couldn’t get him in focus quick enough.
