Header Competition Season 2 # 26 "Flight"

The theme this week is by Dave and is "Flight".  Mac, Gail's ManLanny, Dave,Sandy and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT and start the voting after that.

"Flight" is a great subject. I enjoy watching flight. You can capture a Mallard Duck as it starts its flight.
Or an Osprey as it fishes.
I enjoy the Great Blue Heron as it flies by.
Flight can also be about planes as they fly in formation.
Or that single jet as it goes by at a high altitude.
But my favorite is the seagull on wing in all its beauty so I chose it as my header to show "Flight".
See what the others have shown from the above links.

While I like the picture of the duck taking off, you definitely picked the right photo for your header.

Lanny said...

What an incredible shot, now see, if I had gotten a shot like that with my camera you would be reading about me in the newspaper as the woman killed by a seagull! Yes, this week I have terrible camera envy!

Dave said...

Great header photo, the gull is just hovering over your page well done.
Sorry I'm so late posting!

That sky looks an unbelievable bluey blue. It shows the bird up very well.

Cool flight shots. Awesome shot of the gull.

Great shots! I noticed a couple of posts ago that you were shooting with a CanonSX10IS, same as me. Pretty amazing what you can get with a $350 camera and a talented shooter!
