Taking Off

As usual, I have no idea what kind of bird this is however, he (she?) does have the right idea. Cheryl and I are taking off for the gulf coast in the morning so you won't see any posts from me for a few days. We're driving, well, I'm driving this time so it will be a long road trip, about 15 hours each way. I will be testing Cheryl's car ride endurance this trip. LOL
The bird was sitting still and posing nicely for me but just as I pushed the shutter release he decided to take flight and this is the photo I ended up with.


  1. Isn't that just typical... Perfect shot of a bird then it moves at the last second!

    Have a great road trip and you bring back lots of good pictures!

  2. a tropical bird, for sure.

    be safe driving!

  3. That is a beautiful bird...hope you have a great trip & get lots of great pix:)

  4. Beautiful shot. Safe journey and have fun.


  5. Taking off for sure. Nice!

    Enjoy and safe travels. My escape got cancelled at the last minute. Bummer!
