Thank you. I'm fond of it myself. I actually took an iphone screen shot of a photo that I had taken with my camera and posted to FB. I wanted to share the FB image with the cellar but was away from my computer and couldn't resize it.

To give you a sense of scale, here's another photo taken from the same spot, but with the camera zoomed out a bit.

And another where I zoomed in to full resolution and cropped. This plane was probably 100 meters away and 150 feet up in this one.

You only have a split second to get a shot, and the camera doesn't want to focus, but they are lined up to land about a minute apart, so you have all day to get a good shot as they come in one after the other.

If I'd taken the second pic in post #1996, I would've squee'd.

One of the cool things about being there is after the landing planes streak past you toward the runway, their roaring sound goes with them, and you hear the air above your head making funny wooshing and rippling wispy sounds as the turbulence in the plane's wake settles down into more stable air. Sometimes the weird sound lasts for as much as 20 seconds or so after the plane passes. Not every plane causes the noise. It must be something about the wing design, the flap settings, or the environmental situation at that moment. If you didn't know the plane created the sound, you would think it's ghosts or something. Very otherworldly.

Really weird looking bug I saw on the outside of the hallway window Sunday. I googled "Weird stick-winged insect" and learned that it's a morning glory plume moth.

Also, it's hard to get an iphone to focus on a window pane instead of the house next door.

No, it's simple. All ya gotta do is want a pic of the house next door, VIOLA!, a pic of the window pane!

One of the highlights of my trips to the US was the opportunity to observe all manner of wildlife but I have a particular interest in birds of prey.

Your pic prompted me to go my North American bird book, so I tentatively ask was it a Cooper's Hawk?

Red Tail. The image isn't very clear, but there's a few that roost nearby. It's semi-rare that they kill something on the property. I was maybe 20 feet away from the tree it had draped the squirrel over.

Many thanks, lj. I'm grateful to you.

Are you sure thats a hawk? There are plenty around here and they don't have the size or the legs of that one. Usually they eat field rats and cute baby bunnies.

I think that must be a young eagle. Might be a newspaper story about an Eagle roosting at the Nissan dealership. Who knows what lurks in the stomach of birds, but the Shadow do.
