Whirlybird in flight.

Yesterday afternoon this chopper kept circling my house so I went out to snap some shots. I didn't think it a wise thing to use the shoulder mount when pointing at an officer,
no
telling what might happen.

While your shoulder mount doesn't look quite as much like a rifle as some other ones I've seen, it still doesn't look much like a crutch. Really like both of these.

Cool shots, well done.
When do you get out ?, do you need someone to pay the bail ?

Looks like he has a serious camera on the front of that chopper.

Was he taking a picture of you taking a picture of him, or was he trying to ID your weapon?

Nice shots!

Lou

Thank you Harriet, I appreciate the complement.
No, you're right. its not that it looks so much like a rifle but, at the distance he was from me he might not realize it was merely a camera and I didn't want to take that chance.

Very funny Lou.
They have more than just a camera on that beast. I have no idea what all of it is. I counted about 6 Antennas flood lights, what ever that thing is mounted on the left skid not to mention surround sound stereo and HDTV
, coffee maker, dounuts...
