Sheer elegance !
Please click on the picture for full screen view.

The first thing you would like to add to your body are wings. This is every one's fascination. Mine too, I always dream of flying, my reasons are different, I don't have a passport.
Leonardo daVinci tried but broke his wooden wings and himself in the process, Perhaps he didn't have a passport too. But where do we go for such streamlined aerodynamics and hollow bone structure ?
just flap your wings and off you go ZZZZOONK ! gone.

    good to see you back.

    longing to fly is much a metaphor for me - to escape. Looking at the second photo I am reminded - while it's true that to fly you must flap your wings - you also need to stick your neck out, LOL!

    Stick the neck out ?? Hayden you are so funny, laughed my guts out.

    Oh no not these Hayden, I'll send you the original better resolution files, those will make better prints, these are compressed pictures for easy up or download.
    got your ID
    This hottamale is always a pane Hayden, It rejects big files, any way I'll send

    Yes Imemine, when they are not flying they are busy eating the fleas. just wonder how the fleas get there and the pests inside the fruits and vegetables.

    I have been using Olympus Film cameras all these years, I had to spend a lot for film and processing. I am traveling more now since I turned digital. I can't afford sophixticated digital SLRs. I have nikon 8700 and a panasonic Lumix, never have been possessive about my things, every body, m friends and students keep using my cameras.
