Two butter-morpho gliders painted by Ruth Whiting

This shot was taken by me, while flying the kite in the foreground. Ruth, seen in the balcony, is flying the other kite. This was in the performing arts center here in Gainesville FL. These kites were the precursors to the painted cuben kites. They are simply plastic film which will hold the paint, but not very well. These are kites that I really think of as a magic trick. So far they are really my favorite size indoor kite. They are just large enough to be seen well and just small enough to be controlled easily by the typical human arm length. These have been updated with stainless fittings too.
