SKYWATCH--Four Planes and a Bird

Caught a glimpse of the fast-moving BLUE ANGELS as they rushed over Seattle's skies for its annual event, Seafair. Looks like they're dive-bombing this poor bird, but they're not!

This is a great capture. What are the odds of getting that so well? Terrific!

Wow, spectacular. Seafair is very cool. I was once on the sixty-something floor of a downtown office building during the fair when the Blue Angels roared by at eye level. Unforgettable.

Talk about your perfect timing! Don't you LOVE when all the planets line up like this and something you weren't even aware of just MAKES the photo. Good for you! Love your shot.

I'm out of town until Monday night, work on Tuesday and Wednesday, but lets get together when your schedule matches.
