I’m posting quite a few images here. All I can say is I had a hard time weeding them down to this few. OK, I need to back up for a minute.
I went to visit Ohio over Memorial Day weekend. For those of you from other parts of the world, Memorial Day is always the last Monday in May. Although Ohio is 600 miles inland from where I live, my parents live close to one of the Great Lakes, Lake Erie. The weekend after I returned from Ohio I went down to Cape Cod. It seems that in both of these places I spent my time taking pictures of birds.
There is a bird feeder at my parent’s house that gets great light in the evening. You’ll see quite a few pictures from this feeder. In the morning, on the other hand, their humming bird feeder gets great light.
While at my parents I also went to an air show and took a few pictures of stunt planes and war-birds, both real and fake.
There are a lot of turkey buzzards/vultures in northern Ohio.
On my last full day in Ohio I went eagle hunting with my dad. We saw a few flying around in one area and visited a nest in another area.
Back on the East Coast I had a perfect opportunity to take some pictures of Osprey. The wind was strong and they seemed to hover just over my head. I could have spent all day taking their pictures.
Hope you enjoy things that fly!
