Good day to you all at ePz

Thank you for taking the time out to visit, view, comment and vote on my upload yesterday.

Todays images were captured whilst out and and about. This weekend is the annual Birdman competition, and I managed to captured a couple of images for your perusal which I hope you will like.

I hope that you have a great day today. The weather promises to be somewhat inclement so I may or may not get down in order to watch the serious contenders in tomorrows second day of the Birdman.

Regards as always Nathan

Taken so well as asequence, Nathan. Nicely timed. There seems to have been a little accident at the start and not much of a flight, either.

Catching his rather rapid descent to the depths.......very well done, Nathan.
I'd probably have been laughing so much I'd have had camera shake showing in any I took.
