2010, Day 310 - When pigs fly

I have to admit that I feel a little lost because I sent two lenses in to Canon for cleaning prior to my upcoming trip to the Orient. They are my two favorite lenses, my wide-angle zoom and my macro, which makes sense because I intend to utilize them heavily but that means that they are off at the spa.

Unfortunately my lovely 70-200mm zoom doesn't get a lot of casual carrying time so I decided to throw a little love its way this morning and mounted it on my camera before I left the house and I am rather happy I did. While running errands I was returning to my car and when I looked up I noticed a flight of pigeons on the power lines so I wandered around to find the best angles to capture their souls...

  1. Nice! Although, you did put yourself in a rather precarious position, under all of those birds. :o)))
