Spent two mornings on a pontoon boat a couple weeks ago in Florida where hundreds of kites were roosting in preparation to migrate back to South America. It was so much fun to watch them swoop down and drink from the river as they were preparing to go off to forage. I just posted 4 of my favortie action images from the trip. Thanks to our guide Scott Helfrich who has been doing this for many years.

I like the way you can see the water droplets 'dancing' off each side of the forked tail here.

This individual moved in to our backyard water feature early in July and has been a fixture there since. Who needs a backyard cat when you have one of these predators? The water feature is new as of late last fall. Hopefully it will help successfully draw fall migrant birds especially with the new vegetation we added to supplement the taller existing trees.
