    actually pallie, they dont fly over people, unless they are hidden in the camo/boat things those hunters use... as it is, they dont let you get very close....and needless to say, the hobbit got better shots cause of his fancy equipment... but little 'ole me, i threw the black tarp thing over my head, and went "whoosh"....

    thanks ya'll for the comments. ... would that i could aspire to raymonds heels of his shoes....*maybe one day.....*

    very, very nice AR. I've got some shots like this from last fall. You're flock is even bigger tho :D
    First one ...I think I'd crop it between the FG grass and the rock. otherwise a great shot. love the second as well.
    nice shots!
