Black Kite

The Padle Gaon Project

The Black Kite: a commonplace sight in Mumbai.
Yet the same Black Kite looked surprisingly more inspiring in Padle Gaon.
I guess the environment does it.
After all, which bird ever looked awesome sitting on a heap of garbage?
The Kites spent a lot of time on this particular tree in Padle Gaon.
Given there was water and soft mud separating the tree from us, the birds did not bother to fly away.
The light was rather hard, which shows in the shot.
Must go back and shoot in better lit circumstances.
And yes, I wish I had one of those 800mm type lenses.
Life would have been so much easier 🙂
