Last August, an unexpected adventure landed me in Oklahoma during the 2017 eclipse. While I was there, I fell in love with the Mississippi Kites whose streamlined wings seemed to slice through the hot skies like silver swords. While I did not get to witness totality, I got to see the fierce beauty of the eclipse reflected in the blazing red eyes of the Mississippi Kites. The eclipse made me feel so small and insignificant, but in a strange way it seemed to make the kites seem even bigger.
