Cleared for landing...

Liked how the late afternoon sun highlighted this brown pelican

Green Herons.

They will live on the creek that runs behind my house all summer. But I never see them except in flight! I see them come flying in, they land somewhere in the trees and I can't find them!

I was watching a Blue Jay do some fly catching yesterday. Acting just like a flycatcher would, it flew from it's perch, sort of hovered and maneuvered while pulling flies out of the air before returning to the same perch. The repeated activity provided me multiple opportunities to get some in flight shot. The nearly white overcast sky makes it hard to separate the white on the edge of the bird's wing and tail feathers from the white of the sky which I find disappointing. I suppose it could have gone the other way too, I could have had a deep blue sky that might have muted the blue of bird. Oh well, we can't have perfect conditions all the time, which is probably a good thing, without challenging conditions, what would we blame for those less than perfect photos. :classic_laugh:
