It's all about the eyes!

I just love this Kite. He's such a beauty and I've been able to get some good shots of him before. But, wanting an even closer shot, I put on my 2x Telephoto Converter on my biggest lens and walked in the early morning heat hoping to find him.


There he was on an uncluttered perch in the morning light with a beautiful distant background, which creates a smooth blur on its own. Nice!
