Taking Flight; One By Land, Seven By Air (#388)

One day ~ Texas; the next day ~ Louisiana.  En route to Florida.

My flight is by land via a busy but exceptionally good road: Interstate 10.

The flights of these birds are (mostly) in the air.  Except for the darling one seemingly running on water.

Some are quite clear.  Some might seem a bit blurred….ehh…. those are from my Impressonist period 😉

    Great shots! The birds of prey are perfect on landing! That yellow – last one – is truly well captured in his gymnastics.

    Hi Annie! I’m behind in reading your blog because of the never-ending floor project and homeschooling my granddaughter – but want you to know I never tire of hearing about your free spirited adventures and seeing your inspired photos. You’re my hero! Lots of love from a PA just emerging from the deep freeze. My crocuses ( croci?) are just starting to peek up.

    Love your adventures Annie. These pictures are great. Also just read about the
    Strawberry Festival adventures. What a kick. I’m glad I was a part of one of your adventures. Westport misses you. Must say I too live vicariously through this blog. You are living the life. George and Tracy are at myrtle beach north carolina. Wouldn’t that be funny if you guys were at the same place😊
