silken kite

Silk:
light, strong, lustrous,
it flies beautifully.

Being of the silken persuasion, it's incredibly lightweight and deceptively strong, despite the fragile appearance. Although the cloth is somewhat porous, it needs just a little wind for the sweetest flight. It's a bit like having a furry little wind beast at the other end of the line ready to play.

i love the last image, how it catches the wind with its feathered ends. it must be even more beautiful in person. seems to transform at different angles, i can't quite grasp the complete shape of it. but doesn't matter, i just want to touch it and feel how strong and soft it is...

This is one of the coolest things that I have ever seen. I wish you could make a flock of them and capture them all in flight in a video.
