Hi Serendipidy. 
Looking at what you just posted, to me you have no reason to feel in awe of any of the postings, that is a very nice series of the Blue Angels.
I particularly like the shot with the control surfaces reflecting the sun.

Cheers, Graham.

Nice shot Keith!  Were the sidewinders a threat to the opposition or was he using them for you to get a decent shot...or else ;D

Great shots too serendipity:)

From the back yard, an old Sikorsky passing by.  Heard the odd rotor sound while photographing the grandkid and got a few images before it disappeared in the trees.  As shot other than an exposure adjustment.

Background courtesy of Valvebounce:

What you saw is a 1961 Sikorsky SH-3H with an interesting past.

Excerpt from http://www.thekathrynreport.com/2012/09/croman-corporation-sh-3h-n611ck.html

Accident occurred September 01, 2012 in Covelo, California
The helicopter was involved in firefighting operations. The pilot flying was in the left seat, but the senior pilot was in the right seat. It had made numerous water drops on the fire during a 2-hour period. The helicopter was making its second drop in an area of steep terrain, which was approximately 1,000 feet lower in elevation than the lake it was using for a water source. Due to smoke, the visibility was about 1/2-mile. All five main rotor blades made contact with a snag (typically the remnants of a tree such as the trunk and/or main branches without most of its foliage); the operator pointed out that the snag was similar in color to the smoke. The senior pilot took control of the helicopter, climbed, and made an uneventful landing near the fill point.

Shooting with Canon since 1982.

Hi Cheif.
Great series of shots, always good to see the condensation in the wing vortices, and a great shot of the payload area, interesting split layout.

Hi Kieth.
Like the shot with the sidewinders, neat.

Cheers, Graham.
