Wow! Hard enough to get a row of them sitting without flying off much less one in perfect flight overhead. You were either very patient or very lucky or both:)

joyfotos, many thanks! patience has a lot to do with it, but without luck turning up once in a while you just end up hitting the delete button a LOT... :) I'm still trying to get a close up of one in flight...YIKES!

Jean, really appreciate your kind words and the like! Thanks!

Best wishes, pear
