Wonders of Flight

One of the delights of the Wingscapes BirdCam is its ability to capture the marvel of flight in a single instant.  Some days I am fortunate enough to pick up clear photos of flying birds.  And this week I was so blessed--perhaps a dozen or so pictures like this.  Here a male House Finch is coming in for a landing.  I can easily observe the bird's posture: claws ready to grasp the perch; wings in a braking position.  Some of the photos suggest the ins and outs of birds in such a place make the modern airport look hopelessly stodgy.  Now if only I can capture shots of more interesting subjects than finches!
