If so...kinda scary

Thank you Elissa, Sherri, Brinn and Judith. I shot this on approach into Midway Atoll. I added the birds via Photoshop 7.0. The picture of the birds (just 2 of them, flipped and rearranged) were taken on the main island. They fly very close to you and look at you as if to ask "What are you doing here?". I believe they are Tropical Terns.

HI Michael, congrats on being selected. I recognize this Island, I have been there once.If you look at my gallery you'll notice the birds from there, And yes they love to get right in your face as if they want to look you straight in the eye. Very nice job with your photoshop work.

Great image Michael, I have been to Midway several times myself and recognized the view right away. I used to fly there for the Coast Guard.

Thanks Bob. I flew there a few times with the Air Force. This most recent trip was for a diversion for engine problems on my way doing an L-1011 ferry flight to Thailand.
