Hovering

Yesterday, I finally found my raptor! I've been looking for several days. Luck was on my side. I decided to take my big lens and as soon as I walked from my car, I saw him flying. I took a couple of quick shots, but wanted to get closer.

 

I was surprised when I found myself swinging my legs high over a fence. I usually am much more cautious especially with an expensive camera and lens in tow. But my adrenaline was pumping. I just love KItes!
