I took some photos of the Mississippi Kites in West Des Moines this noon, but backlighting was terrible, plus they were perched in a tree on private property, so it was difficult to get any good & close pictures. The one attached here had to be cropped, lightened and sharpened with my computer's photo editor, but at least you can view one of the 3 MIKIs fairly close!
