  1. Awesome shots, Tim! I’ve seen/shot them over Annapolis, Maryland, many years back. They give a breath-holding, spectacular show.

    • Thanks Donna. Much appreciated. They are very fun to watch and photograph. They have been coming to Houston about every other year for awhile. Just like big birds and my first love for flight photography. Got my first 100-400 lens for airshows, not birds. That love came later.

    Awesome shots of these “birds of a different feather” . Looks like the weather cooperated for you too.

    • Thanks Lea. Weather was pretty much a bust on Saturday so I waited until Sunday to go. Glad that I did.

    • Thanks Amana. Long time no see. I’m doing well with some limited photography activity lately. Hope to pick it up over the next few months.
