    Yes glad to hear you are OK now Spray!

    Thanks for the compliment in the July thread Photobug. That was taken from my backyard. I'm fairly close to the airport and sometimes military planes do touch n go's and other exercises. I've even seen Air Force One around - I think it gets serviced there sometimes.

    Here's another one:

    mhedges...like the sun and the Sun Flower photo.
    So on August 4th I went over to our neighbors and took a picture of their Sun Flower that their daughter brought home from school when it was less than 1 foot tall. Now it's over 10 ft.

    First, really like the shot of the fighter.

    About 45 minutes from where we live is a field that is about 10 acres and it's covered in Sun Flowers. I have been there twice for photo shoots. It was an amazing time. Have not been there in years and I don't have any photographs on Flickr to post.

    Thought I would add a plane to go with the last couple of pictures. This WWII bomber was taxing to take off with a load of paying passengers for a 30 minute ride.

    And on the other end of that baby you can see why it could get to Mach 3.

    It's not stealth. It's freaking fast!

    Any picture of a "Big Boy" is outstanding. That was a beast of an engine.

    This one for mhedges and the other airplane followers.
    Wish I had a longer lens with me. This is a D750 + 70-200mm, of course at 200mm.
