Nice ones, Dave, I love the middle one with that deep blue sky behind the flock.

Hi Dennis

Like Norm, I pay my models well, unfortunately for me, his models are Union, and take their work seriously, whereas, mine are just unemployed Brooklyn bums and often beat me out of my cash...

As for the sky, this was an arrangement that I made with Mother Nature. She does this for free, but does not think well of me. This sky that she suddenly presented for my use, was one of her rare gifts. Once again, Norm seems to be on a first name relationship with her....

I must not be holding my mouth right dave. You have a very nice shot of not one but ten birds at one time in flight and I'm still having trouble getting a good one of just one bird in flight. Good job indeed.

It's actually much easier to shoot a flock than an individual. The problom is in finding the flock....
