Cleared for takeoff...
Playing with a borrowed tripod, I setup for birdy photos. I didn't have a lot of time, since I had my son with me who wanted some attention. The luck that a bird came, asked for permission to get it's photo taken, and then fly away, was nice to have. It's not my best work, but it's probably the best I did this day.
Thanks to Antonis Kyrou for the use of the tripod. I'm convinced. I will get something like this too.
