  7. I don't know if you're one of those people in India who hates North Americans quoting Kipling, but this photo reminds me of his Ballad of East and West:
    "If I had bowed my head on my breast, as I have held it high,
    The kite that whistles above you now were gorged 'til she could not fly" —
    Beautiful photo of a raptor I always have associated and always will associate with India.
    Love to Bozo from me, and from Lindy. See you on the weekend.

      Oh, East is East and West is West, and never the twain shall meet,
      Till Earth and Sky stand presently at God's great Judgment Seat;
      But there is neither East nor West, Border, nor Breed, nor Birth,
      When two strong men stand face to face, though they come from the ends of the earth!

  10. Very recently, we have begun to have red kites flying above us here. (Which, I think, are a bit different from this kind?)

    Seriously, it's a beautiful Friday photo and one of your best Friday bird shots!
