  1. Stunning shots, Phil . . . my father has an affinity for all birds, namely osprey. Though not much of a blogger, not at all actually, still, I will have to send him this link. I think he would enjoy your work immensely. I have as well.

    • Thank you so much for your visit Cara and I appreciate your very nice comments. I’m very glad you liked these flight shots and I hope father does as well. The osprey is a favorite of mine as well and I always enjoy watching them fish.

  2. Dear Phil, how beautiful flights you captured. I know this is not easy photography and also should be very patience…A few weeks ago I noticed something flying over the fields. It seemed to me big and I thought that it should be a stork. But my husband didn’t think like that because all stork have left our land. Anyway it was not an easy photograph especially for me but I tried to take and make zoom. When we saw the picture we understood that it was a stork and stayed here, what happened we don’t know. But I always remember you and your amazing photographs, how I wished to take a better picture of this poor stork. Thank you dear Phil. Fascinated me again your shots. And also the title too πŸ™‚ I would like to see November Flights too now… Love, nia

    • Thank you so much for looking at these bird flight photos Nia! I also greatly appreciate all your kind comments!
      I did August and Sept. flights in the past and hope I will have something for November! πŸ™‚

  3. Oh, these are truly breathtaking shots. Phil, how do you train the birds to perform like this for the camera shots? You need to share your secret. πŸ™‚ The Great Egret is my very BEST!!

    • Thanks very much for looking and commenting Molly! I got a shot of a kingfisher with a fish in his yap this morning but it was kinda too far off to make a good pic. Hopefully next time. πŸ™‚

  4. Still amazes me to see the enormous variety of birds you manage to get in front o the camera as where I only get to see maybee two or three, and they don’t sit still !
    Well done πŸ˜€

    • Thank you for viewing these BIF photos and I’m very happy you liked them! I do see a variety which can change with the seasons. I’m waiting now for some pelicans to start hitting the marsh area as opposed to the ocean where I normally see them. Bad news is alligator season is winding down… 😦

    • Thanks very much for checking out these flight shots and I’m glad you liked them. It’s also nice to get a vote for Woody! The wood storks are not much to look at up close but they are quite elegant flyers.

    • You and me both about the kingfisher. I say this with all due respect and admiration but I hate those little rats with wings! πŸ˜‰ Yes they drive me crazy. I have yet to get a photo that I can finally relax and say now I have a really good kingfisher shot. Oh well, maybe next time. πŸ™‚
