    Thumbs up Excellent work ...

    Remarkable catch ... what did you use for bait?

    funny you ask ! - chicken manure

    I noticed hundreds of these hover fly's in my garden today after putting some manure in it yesterday. I suppose they are attracted to that stuff.

    40,000 foot flyby

    On my way to DC last month, I took this picture through the airplane window.

    A900 w/ Tamron 70-200 @ 180mm, f/11, 1/250 sec, ISO-100 through crappy airplane window

    I was listening to the voices from the cockpit channel. We were at 40,000 feet. Air Traffic Control alerted the pilot of approaching aircraft at 36,000 feet with approximately 1-mile clearance. So I was ready.
