Flying Scissors

I was out for a hike yesterday and just as I was getting ready to enter the area I was going to this scissortail came flying by. He landed on the fence wire a little ways from me and I got a few more photos but I didn't think they were as good as the in-flight photo.

I might also mention that the hike wasn't the smaretest of ideas. I was in Oklahoma and it ended up being very sunny and 95 degrees with about 90% humidity. I definitely like hiking in the winter better!


  1. Quite a spectacular bird and a very nice picture of it! Is this with your Tamron lens? Yes hiking in the heat and humidity can be prety harsh...

  2. Yes, this was taken with the Tamron 18-250mm lens. I don't think the photo would have been as good if it happened after my hike so I got lucky on this one!
