Default Transportation - Firefighters

The guys who fly these things have my highest admiration. I took these two shots in May. I hope I don't see them this close up again this year (it's very, very dry and we're still in the middle of fire season).

Very cool action shots. It's been a terrible fire season out West here. Hopefully, not a trend.

Like the second shot, the helicopter looks like it's being framed by the clouds.

The second shot really has the look of a metallic insect attacking something.
Greta action shots.

Thanks! It is really interesting to watch these helicopters work. And yes, it is really dry and there's red flag warnings tonight/tomorrow. Hope everyone out here stays safe.

These always remind me of large wasps.
