More an IL-76 minus the tail assembly as the wing attaches to the top of the fuselage...


Good One RPT, Good Shot & Good Likeness to the Vultures sliding in to a Kill.
That is not a picture I took. I whacked it from the net. But yes, the picture is lovely.

Thank you very much for the kind words, Click. I keep trying to improve. The many posters on this forum and their work are a constant inspiration.

Had to dodge security guards ( yes, security guards on the BEACH !) and hike to a remote spot were this cool bird flew back and forth practically begging to have its picture taken.

Awesome shots. I especially like the second Hummingbird and the Least Bell's Vireo. Nicely done Sir!

Revup, islander, serendipity, excellent pictures! Can't wait for the rains to abate. The only birds that I see these days are crows and pigeons :(

Oh we'll, all in good time. Come October/November, the migratory birds will come down to our lattitudes :)

Here's a few of mine from today. My Heron friends showed up hungry, so I helped them to a small fish dinner. 7D, 100-400mmL @ 400mm, f/7.1, 1/320-1/500s, handheld.
