You all know about my love of birds,so this picture comes as no surprise.
The Turkey Vulture does not have a beautiful face,but watch it in flight and all you can see is grace and beauty.
Of course I cannot help but get a picture of a plane going overhead.This one came by close to sunset and it made for a nice shot.
I was out of town,waiting for the sun to set,when I received a text from my son,Steve,with a short video clip of a power chute taking off. He has a friend who owns one of these machines,so I was not surprised to see this.A moment later I got another text from Steve,saying that Kai was on the chute.Suddenly I was very surprised and interested.I could hear the chute but could not see it for a while.A moment later this is what I saw just to the east of me.
Joey,the owner/operator of this machine swung on by me and came towards me,with the orange glow of the setting sun behind him.I was thrilled to get this picture.
Kai had pointed out my car on the road and they made a close pass,so close I could hear him telling Kai to wave to Grandma.This picture is not cropped,but I did use my telephoto lens on it.
I am so proud of that young lady. Almost I stayed home that evening,but now I am so glad that I went out and to just the right place to get these pictures.
Oh,yes,I did get some pretty nice sunset pictures as well,but they are for another post.
