Today’s Photo from Ted Grussing Photography: Lessons

Monday, May 22nd, 2017

By Ted Grussing

… I flew this morning and I flew again late this afternoon and in between the two flights I took One for a ride acclimating her for the long trip this fall and then an outing in the back of the house so that she could hone her predatory skills. Whilst out in back watching her hunt, a male House Finch settled on a yucca plant and just as I got the camera up and starting squeezing a shot he took to the air displaying his prowess in initiating flight. This was the only shot I got of him and even though I got some very beautiful shots of the red rocks in last light, nothing compares with the beauty of flight … he cranked and banked and I emulated it on my early evening flight a few hours later … think I’ll do it again on my flight a little later this morning too :+) talk about flaperons … wowzah!
