19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Mississippi Kite holding a frog

I was in my backyard taking photos of insects when I happened to look up at the highwire and noticed the Mississippi Kite perched. Taking advantage of the moment, I quickly turned and began to shoot photos. I noticed he was eating something but didn't realize exactly what until I uploaded the photos to my computer. It was a great moment!
