“An unusual number of Swallow-tailed Kites have been seen on-island around the airport where they soar about, catching bugs on the wing. These were taken 7/23/20 when they were perched on a nearby tree (we usually never get to see them sit still!).”

Editor’s Note: The Snyder husband and wife team have always loved photography, birds, and being outdoors. When asked who took each photo, Kirsten said they swap their camera so often they don’t always know. Kirsten and Hal started their website www.moonbeampublishing.com in 2008, focused on bird photography and other interests, to share the amazing sights they witnessed in nature.

The Snyders now call Amelia Island home having retired here in 2014. They donate images and book proceeds to non-profit environmental groups and are published in books, magazines, and calendars around the world. While it is certain that they will continue to miss more wonderful shots than they capture, the thrill of watching the beauty of flight will always remain.
