He looks so intense and focused...I guess that means I could never be a kite! ;)
Nice shot.

Is this a wild bird? I've only ever seen them in zoos or parks but I think they'd look much lovelier in the wild.

No, this is a caged one.We've them flying around but it's so hard to catch them sitting somewhere.
