FLY-day is an homage to what our feathered friends do best, fly.

  1. They are pretty amazing, always fascinates me how far they can fly when they migrate at certain times of the year. Nice capture Robin.

  7. Thank you, Gary. It is unusual to get a flight shot with the bird coming right at the photographer, that's for sure.

  8. Your photos bring me joy, Robin, especially when they are the first thing I see after a power failure, following heavy winds and snow. Ah, to be a bird and fly!

  14. Vclark and Rolling, thank you very much. I could photograph birds all day every day, but especially birds in flight.
