This is the last image in the series of Swallow-tailed Kites that were photographed in Central Florida.  I was able to witness several thousand of the kites take to the air and begin their long migration back to South America.  A wonderful experience.

What a great series, Jake. This one of the pair is super. Very nice exposure and wingspread.

Lovely series, Jake - and I particularly like the two different but complementary poses here!

I very much enjoyed the series Jake! Very nice images. To see them in thousands must be very special. Thanks for sharing.
