Swallowtail kite with tree frog

By jbsaladino
A swallowtail kite flying while grasping a tree frog in its talons. It is very common to see kites feeding on the wing. I observed this kite bending its head down and tearing off portions of the frog while it flew overhead.

wonderful shot! Where do you live, we get them here quite frequently, all though there are far more zopilotes Smile

I live in Sarasota, Florida. This shot was taken on May 22. The kites are wintering somewhere in South America this time of the year.
Superb
