It's harder than you'd think to take photos of butterflies, even when you are surrounded by them in the butterfly house at the Melbourne zoo.

Some rejects from this morning:

1: Got any chips, mister?
2: On The Wing 2.
3: On The Wing 3.
4. On the Wing 4. Just not sharp enough...

Shooting eagles on the wing is harder than I expected.

Al.

Some great photos in the posts above.

August has been a busy month, plus itís been cold and wet, so I havenít yet found time to go and chase after anything with wings. Heaps of bird shots in the archives, but Iíd like to try for a current one.

So hereís some older pictures featuring wings:
  1. A car from the days when their front wings actually looked like wings. Bought for $400 from a friend around fifty years ago. Long gone now but I have very happy memories of that car.
  2. Bee heading home with some booty.
  3. Female Red Cockatoo, near my shed.
  4. Rare wood-duck and nest. I was lucky to spot it not far from our back door.
  5. Guitar shop with wings. (Kosmic in Osborne Park had a Harvard hanging from the roof for a while. As you doÖ.).
  6. Heading Home. Sunset with wings ( cockatoo in that case). View from our verandah. One of my favourite pictures. I often use it for a desktop picture on the computer.


I did contemplate taking a picture of King Edward Hospital in Perth (which has an East and West wing) but didnít feel that an obscure joke was really worth the drive.
