They usually travel in packs of four to six, but I did find these three wandering the sky together Sunday afternoon at the Little Rock Air Force Base



I have something else in mind, but this is my entry for now.

Great idea for the monthly challenge - and some great entries already!

My family used to love to play SET (back when all the children were still at home, and were still children!)

Here is my SET:

Same species (Sassafras); Same color (yellow autumn "freckled"); Different shapes (1-lobe, 2-lobe, 3-lobe).

I guess the commercially available board game "Tri-Bond" is based on this idea of SET.

So, there I was, spending a week in the sun on the island of Ibiza. Except the weather had other ideas and decided that torrential rain would be much more fun!
I was a prisoner in the hotel. But outside my room was a palm tree. In fact from the balcony you could touch the tree. All well and good but it was basically the only thing you could see!!! Sorry, I digress.
During the rainstorms I took my trusty GX-10 and shot lots and lots of photos of rain drops on the tree. The day was very dull but being me I used the 70-300mm, so thanks to the low shutter speeds, 99.9999% of the photos are useless. And here's one of them!
Nothing like as sharp as it could have been but it does qualify for this month's challenge. In fact I think it qualifies twice. Once for the fruits and again for the water droplets. The EXIF data should be included but if not it was taken at 1/60th @ f8. The focal length was 300mm

Today I went back for another threesome with slightly better lighting condition. The drawback is that they were flying away rather than facing me.
Pl note this is NOT for entry

I had been thinking about this shot for a while and finally got around to taking it. Incandescent light to the right with a sheet of white paper to the left to give some fill light. DL with kit lens.
