Mississippi kites Mating with Full Wingspread

Post on May 22, 2014 Mississippi Kite Kite BirdsRaptor


When the Mississippi kites consummate, the mate would cover the female with both wings so the best action is wait till the end after the male ejaculates and about to take off. He would has the wing full spread and that’s your kodak moment.

Tip for high speed shooter. Easy on the shutter, conserve the camera write buffer.
