kite in flight on white

Not quite sure what exposures I used, but the kite was flying high!  Not sure that it was even attached to a string.

kite day on the church grounds june 2008

The kite flight was a part of our church picnic.  At one point we probably had more than a dozen kites vying for a space in the air — and not a large space to boot.

Kildeer protection june 2008

Not until later in the afternoon did we realize we had disturbed a kildeer and her nest.  Just in case  you are wondering, we did find the nest and protected it from harm.  Meanwhile, the kildeer did it’s best to attract us away from the nest, even appearing to be hurt, and to puff out all its plumage.
