The curious black kite that spied on our meeting brought back memories of another kite I encountered back in 2009.
I was at the typhoon shelter in Chai Wan when I spotted several black kites circling overhead.
Soon one of them swooped down, likely trying to catch a fish right in the shelter. But it pulled up short at the last moment, when it discovered that it was just a piece of garbage. So its eye sight was not as keen as I thought.
They are still majestic in flight.
