There were a couple of Swallow Tailed Kites flying around our house. I always like watching their graceful flights. I was hoping to capture one of them in flight a little closer to the ground, but I took this one thru a palm tree frond and liked it.
Applied a little cropping and selected fluorescent white balance, in Camera Raw, which gave it the blue effect. My settings were ISO 100, f/9, 1/2000 sec at 300mm (70-300mm).
