Cleared for Take Off

Nice shot Jeff. I really like the action and simplicity of this photo. I usually just get the tail feathers leaving the frame.

Thanks Murry,
These fellows were everywhere--often directly in front of the ferry that I was shooting from. They would wait until the boat was almost on top of them and then run/fly out of the way. I was fortunate enough to catch a few of these feathered dare devils on film. #13691
