Here is the whole story -- almost. An unsuccessful dive. Kiting, again and again, above different parts of the grassland. Another dive, adjusting its trajectory again and again, fast and slow. Grabbing a vole, adjusting it for carrying, and flying off -- to friends or family?

For how this all ends -- devouring the vole amidst friends and family -- see the collection in my Jasper Ridge gallery, <CaptureTheLight.Zenfolio.com/Kites> .
