Default I want to join the mile high club.

Couldn't resist the title but after seeing all the cool bugs in flight I made my attempt.

Standing back about 3 feet with the 55-200, I really did not expect to get anything.

Not as good as some previous but here goes.



Maybe I cropped this to tight.



94 degrees and 98% humidity, Shooting for about ten minutes. Sweat beads rolling into the eyeballs, had to quit.

Thanks for looking.
Cheers.

Thanks for the comments. I was having fun and was amazed that they turned out at all.
I sure wish it would cool down or at least the humidity would go away, too hot to spend much time outdoors.

Wearing a headband will keep the sweat out of your eyes.
