AUGUST Photo Challenge - Entries (Please Post them here)

The topic this month is: ... "Something with wings"

This sounds tailor made for one of our newer contributors.
Plenty of scope for the rest of us too, so let your creative side fly.

This thread is only for posting your entry along with any comments you'd like to make about your own photo.
If you would like to comment on other people's entries, or have any "other" shots of your own, then please use the Comments and Rejects Thread -> HERE.

Remember the Rules:
* one entry (just one image) per person and
* the image must be your own work.
* all other normal forum rules, and image size limits, apply.

The image doesn't necessarily have to be taken this month, but in the spirit of the challenge, we do encourage it, so you get out and get into it and enjoy the challenge.

The winner of the public vote, which will be run at the end of the month, will get to choose next month's topic and have their photo added to our "Photo Challenge Hall of Fame" thread.

Good Luck!

I'll kick it off with this one of a duck at Bell's Parade, Latrobe, Tasmania.

This was already posted recently in the terrestrial section. I don't
know if that is o.k., and yes, butterflies are difficult to photograph.

Bird on a Wire

This is a kite (I think - I don't have a book to check while I'm stranded in Barcaldine) waiting for either wind or thermals to get up.

Lilydale Lake

Taken on my phone whilst walking dogs at the lake. Reeds on the left spoil the picture, could crop the picture, maybe later.

Cheers Keith

Taken today down by Wyong River.

Tried hard to capture that massive wingspan, but had to settle for this for now

Feed me Seymore

I found this patch of insectivorous Sundew plants on a mossy patch of ground in rural Western Australia yesterday. Look closely at those dark specks stuck to the fronds. Wings

Big Moth

Had plenty of birds but thought this might be a bit different.

This fellow was sitting on a dead branch just outside our door. Shot with the same gear I shoot my astro-photography pictures. I admit it was taken a month or so ago but it is my best shot yet.
