A wonderful photo Jenn. Great isolation. They will be leaving for Mexico in a few weeks. I have seen them in mid-late September flying across the Chester River and the Chesapeake. Quite miraculous.

Gorgeous Jenn. I'm attending another car rally tomorrow evening, it's something new for me. Spent the whole day in Dinosaur Valley today, need about 2 weeks. Next summer I'm going down there with a tent, it is phenomenal.Grin
