Man, this place is the best. I have learned so very much since joining. Not only bikes but, things like this. Never really GAF about birds unless they ran into my chest at speed.

Actually studied up on several of these pics. Beak designs and what they were developed for. Color schemes and shades.

Flamulated........got it.

Thanks T for opening my mind. And I think this is what our little part of the interweb is all about.

That one is one of our older backups, its a BK117 C1. This is the one I normally have, its the newer model, a BK117 C2. A combination of French engines and German airframes, with Kawasaki gearboxes.

But the old iphone doesn't do too bad with pics depending on the light.

I gotta say, I was there, and I like your pictures way more than not only any other picture I've ever seen, but even more than seeing them in person!

Thank you Tina - a nice cloud and a dust storm can do wonders...

Wish I was on my way back ... I have always been drawn to Monument Valley - it has a magical feel to it.
