Nature & Wildlife's Beauty and Behavior Through My Lens
The green heron is my favorite – bejeweled wings!
Thank you, Eliza! They do have lots of special coloring on their wings, perfect description!
The geese look majestic in the air.
They do, and I love when they honk on their passing. 🙂 Thank you, Ken!
Cool action shots! We have a lot of Turkey Vultures around us; must my age (and they are getting ready)! 🙂
😅 Thank you, Tom!!
Beautiful captures Donna, I especially think the first one of the heron is amazing colours.
Thank you, Ashley, Eliza’s comment before yours described the Green Heron’s coloring as “bejeweled wings” and how perfect a description with their amazing colors!
You even have an osprey that doesn’t migrate! The DS Cormorant shot, I thought that was your signature…Oops!
Bottom line: I love or your pictures, my friend. 🙂
😅 😂 How funny!!!! Thank you much, HJ! 😊
I like the green heron too! The Canada geese are also very nice!
Thank you much! I had a great time with the Green Herons this summer, there were so many this year. With all those minnows/little fishies, no wonder, it was like having all-you-can-eat every day! 🙂
One of these things is not like the other…..😀
😊 Thank you Sharon!
Great flight studies, Donna. Don’t you wish at times you could lift off, get above it all, and see what they see? 🦅
Thank you, Tanja! And, yes!! Soar and feel the air flowing through my hair! 🙂
You have perfected the art of flight shots, Donna! 🦅
After ten years of practicing, it is about time, lol. 😉 Thank you very much, Indira! 😊
Simply amazing! Love the perspective of that first shot. 😊
Thank you, Irene! He was heading in! 😉
Yes, and you are up higher than he was. Don’t get to see the top of the wings photographed too often. Very nicely done.
I forgot to ask, how’d you like that Osprey V-22? 🙂
Oh, I love the Osprey. They are been here for the Chicago Air Show for the last few years. It would be so much fun to go up in one. I’ve been up in a helicopter and airplanes of all sizes but an Osprey would be special. 😊
Beautiful, Donna! I so much wanted to get a good green heron flight shot this summer but they (and my opportunity) have come and gone – so I guess there’s always next year!
Thank you, Susan! Yes, always next year! Keep your eye out, though, I’m still watching the Green Herons on the creek here flying from perch to perch and fishing. 🙂
Fine photos Donna!
Thank you, Belinda!
Bell Boeing V-22. Dangerous craft with a high casualty rate.
Thank you for confirming ID, Vic. Oh my, I didn’t know that. 😦
That is just scratching the surface. It’s one of those things where, they KNOW it is a bad design but, so much money has been spent in development that they are stuck with it. Combining a plane with a helicopter is no easy task. The Harriers are better craft but, can’t carry a crew.
I’ve spoken to a couple of Marines that said V-22s are extremely difficult to fly and maneuver.
😦 I didn’t know this, thank you for sharing, Vic.
Nice Series of flight shots! Glad you included the V-22 Osprey! They are amazing to watch, if especially you are very close up to it!
Thank you, Reed! I thought I’d ‘sneak’ it in there, lol. I was surprised to see it fly over Cambridge, was glad I got some shots.
