Haha - if that was a carrier tower and those were f-14s, the captain would have grounded those hotdogs! Nice shot, hodad66!

It makes you wonder to what degree the birds of today incorporate manmade landmarksas waypoints fortheir onboard navigational systems...

Very cool shot!! Definite postcard shot!

The framing effect really adds to it.

Do you have a special program that adds the frame to it?

zoomn, glad that you liked the pic..... the framing came with the same group of free actions from Thomas Neiman that I mentioned before. He has a great site!!!

http://epaperpress.com/psphoto/index.html

Just download his EPP Actions... it has toners, frames, a watercolor action & also a pen & ink action. Enjoy

Jedi's post made me wonder, is it real? It's just that it looks so odd, but in a good way. It's great!

Geoffs, there is a TV program here whose subject is about nature. I forget its name but I'm looking for it as I type. One subject was pigeons, putting to the test the phrase "as the crow flies". They put cameras on some pigeons, took them to the middle of nowhere and let them go. It was shown that they don't fly in a straight line, but along the motorways. They take the same route as you. :lol:

I can't remmeber the name of the program now. That is going to do my head in. If anyone from the UK knows what it was called please say. :lol: It was on BBC One.

Hi ferny - I don't know what the show is that you watched but I've read some of the research that found those things out about pigeon navigation. It appears that their navigational systems are (at least to some degree) landmark-based and it just stands to reason that since man started building large structures, that those same structures would be used by animals in their navigation.

Thanks for bringing that research boiling back to the surface! :-)
