Great shot! I've captured other birds before while waiting on my hummers but never one quiet this large!

I thnk it's a preying mantis that grew up on a diet of high-class fruit flies. :-)

Looking for submarines in Mud Creek, no doubt.

Navy P-3 Orion Recon aircraft. But why aren't the engines working?

oh my gosh. How cool. That looks like the plane my husband used to fly - The P3-Orion!

I guess 1/2500 of a second is fast enough to stop airplane propellers!

This aircraft is used for tracking submarines and shipping.

LOL, great catch. You can see the letters on the airplane.
