Default Things That Fly

Just a few recent shots I took while walking along. Some of these are live links and you can go to Flickr to see a larger version.

Black Saddlebags. Shot towards the sun.


Spot-winged Glider. TCON-17 used.


Green Darner


American Avocets. TCON-17 used.


Airshow this weekend and this guy was rehearsing. If the camera had been on I might have taken a better shot. TCON-17 used.

That is a great collection, Steve-

Great animal flying machines. That blue colored C-130 belonging to the Blue Angels is a very familiar sight. They are a great demonstration team.

Thanks Clint and Sarah. I shot a few Blue Angels yesterday, and a few other jets, but there were a bit away and brighter than I liked.

Great shots, Steve. The last shot, with a bird also figuring in, justifies your caption very well.
