Excellent pinpoint landing. Fabulous photo sequence!

These are outstading! Breathtaking, really!

First off, your new header is excellent, especially like the font for your blog title--almost like rusting ironwork. Was that the idea?

And as for the landing, those "pleated" wings are just amazing in all stages of the landing.

Great photos of this beautiful bird! I like your Kentucky barn also...marvelous light.

Dave said...

A wonderful series Brian... and your title sums it up so well..

TexWisGirl said...

beautifully done - both by the bird and by you.

(google reader and my reading list widget didn't pick you up today, but i'm guessing it'll take a day to sync up and recognize the feed again. my own post wasn't picked up by reader until 3 1/2 hours after it posted.)

Brian this is a stunning series, so crisp and clear, absolute perfection! Now if the bird would have missed his/her landing that would have been hilarious! lol It's amazing to sit and watch just how graceful most birds are.

Have a wonderful day, cheers.

The simplicity of a landing suddenly becamea a complicated, yet beautiful, sequence of motion. How very beautiful, Brian.
