    C&C always valued. Thanks for looking! D800 with my favorite lens, the 105mm f/2.8 micro

    Great set! My favorite is #2 because it is shot head on. A different view.

    Cool pictures of nature's most accomplished fliers.
    I especially like the head-on shot.

    Thanks for the kind words
    Thank you!. They are amazing pilots

    Thanks Dean. I agree.
    I found myself wishing shot 2 had been in-flight, but it didn't look right when I cloned out the stick...
