Wings. Any kind of wings. Birds, butterflies, insects, airplanes, paragliders etc.

- Up to three images per person.
- No date restrictions but if you take something new especially for the challenge, please say so and you may get extra credit.
- Closing date is early on Monday, 2nd April, so you have two full weekends to shoot something new.

Every year ultralights lead a group of sandhill crane juvies from Wisconsin to Florida. (Except this year they stopped in Georgia and refused to go any further) Quite a story about how this journey came to be.

Anyhow, this is when they flew in to Dunnellon, Florida airport, their next to last stop last year. Pretty impressive watching them.

Wingspan is about 7' so they are some pretty good sized birds.

These work on aerodynamic principles similar to wings... (sort of). Do they count? Frankly, these are snapshots; I'm just showing them for the interpretation of the challenge.

Time to judge this one. I have a few very brief comments:

LarryH: Fascinating story and a nice mix of natural and artificial wings.
eastsider: Love the bee. Nice processing on the bomber.
Thunder: A great selection of wings.
walter23: Yeah, kind of wings. A nice series.
mcrowleyphoto: Great Eagle action. The angel was surprise as I scrolled down. Nice silhouette.
Patrish: Good action shot. I also liked Yellow Peril.

... and the winner is ...

Thunder (shot #1)

Lovely wing display with backlighting showing the feather structure. Very nice. Over to you for the next challenge.

Thank you Paul :D This is one of our Red tail hawks right above the driveway (ours as in member of the family) It was a juvenile in this shot, the tail still has bands. It was hatched and raised within 200 yards of our lodge, it and its sibling visit often. I have an arted series of shots of one of the parents having lunch across the street in the snow, the contrast between the red and white, and the "why are you interrupting my lunch" look the hawk gave me were great. I'm thinking that lunch should be the next challenge, but maybe something a little less dramatic would be better…Ahhhhhh, legs? Or love? Let me think…….. :)
