[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
There are plenty of these Pariah Kites in Jammu sky all throughout the year. I try to capture them in action. Today afternoon, I took a snapshot of their mating when the male Kite descended in a swoop on the female sunning itself on a transmission tower near my house.

Very nice moment captured with good sharpness. I agree with you but again to get that zoom I have to carry a big lens. Do you suggest anything. Real flavor is missing although I took lots of images without DSLR.


Hello Ram,
Excellent details of this Kites in love despite the man maid steel....
Lovely colors.
