The Balcony

This is a crow that comes by often, it hangs out with two other crows and they are constantly around, which I think is very interesting. Always together, never apart, they head off over the horizon and come back with something interesting in their beaks: a branch, an orange peel, always something it seems…
The occasional aircraft flyby. Can’t be enough of those for me. Fascinated by flight, I am.
Coming in from Amsterdam, heading to Atlanta, Flight Radar 24 is a very interesting APP that tells you exactly what it is you are looking at!
This beautiful creature…I know…fugly might just be the word but I’ll tell you, they glide effortlessly, majestically, soaring to great heights, finding food by an incredible ability to utilize it’s highly attuned sense of smell. Massive wingspans, there are three living close by, and each day they do a flyby to check me out, and yes, often close enough to see right into their eyed without the aid of a lens or optics.

Just some shots from today. Doctors appointments this week…all scheduled…I get quiet when I have these…puts me in a funk…all should be good just can’t wait until they are over…

Catch up with you soon. Have a great day!!!

  1. Great job with your in-flight shots, Tony, a tough challenge with a long lens. I am one of those rare people who like vultures and your images captured the details of the bodies wonderfully.

    1. Thanks, Mike, And the strange thing is the Sigma 150-500mm rotates the opposite way to zoom in and out. πŸ€¦πŸ»πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ˜‚

      1. Third-party lens manufacturers have a choice to make when manufacturing zoom lenses–they can either zoom in by turning clockwise like a Canon or counterclockwise like a Nikon. My Tamron 150-600mm lens zooms in the Nikon direction even though it is mounted on a Canon. (So, for example when I look down at the scale the 600mm mark is to the extreme left and the 150mm mark is to the extreme right.) As a side note, the difference also applies to the lens mounting system–you turn clockwise to mount a Canon lens and counterclockwise to mount a Nikon lens.
