Watching the Swallow-Tailed Kites can be mesmerizing as they float what seemed effortlessly. The first picture is one I named Brutus. He seemed to be larger and more bulkier than the rest. He also did a little chasing of the others if he got close.
Once they started gathering they kept coming giving many photo ops. Hand holding the lens at the beginning wasn’t bad. However, by the end, I was wishing for a tripod or monopod for help in that department.
