Flightshow For Bystanders

I wish I could fly! This owl can – and is very proud, as we can notice. Just saying “Hello” and “Good bye” in the same second!

I’ve been very amused, when I discovered a geese gang with national pride flying their patrol along some US flags on the inauguration day of president Obama in Washington, click on the link:

  1. I have an owl that visits sometimes, and calls from the growve of trees behind my house. Sometimes I go out onto the deck and call back. Wonderful post, Frizz!


  2. I loved your comment “every time when I see an owl, I think: my cat is staring at me” that came with the post…
    I love the Thunderbirds…have seen them many times over the years.. . thanks for reminding me of those days past. Great photo.


    • my cat indeed is very jealous, when she sees an owl. Recently I discovered an youtube video featuring a cat and an owl playing with each other. That was scheduled for today’s post, but the video was set private in the meantime by his owner …
      every time when I see an owl, I think: my cat is staring at me; and every time when I see my cat, I think: something like an owl is staring at me; imagine, how surprised I’ve been, when I saw a cat and owl playing together friendly!

  3. I’ve only seen an owl once and it was sleeping. This is a rare occasion to see one flight live.


  4. I wish I could fly too …
    Love owls! 🙂


  5. I love the look of this flying owl to the photographer.
    Owls are common rare to see because they are night active and sleeping on the day . By this way i myself become more and more an owl and love to work in the night and to have a hat of sleep from time to time on the day.
    Here is my shot to this theme:

  13. An amazing capture!


  14. I’ve not seen many wildlife “face” photos of owls in flight–still frames–such as in your photo. I mean this is an amazing still photo capture. I’m impressed. Great job!


  15. tOonie :)

    That’s a handsome owl you got there!!
    well I woke up one morning to find crows hovering and crowing to find that a medium size owl was in the middle of the crow gang. Poor thing flew here and there and disappeared after some distance. I wonder what the crows will do to it?
    But your photos are a nice click!
    Thank You so much passing by and following my blog.
    You made my day 🙂

    The airplane is just handsome! Both are amazing shots. Thank you, Frizz!


  17. FYI: Short-eared Owls are often seen during daylight hours. This is an amazing capture!


  18. Great shots! (including the comments section!) Cats and owls do look a lot alike 😀

    I’m not sure I have anything worthy of sharing; no owls or air shows, but I do have a Turkey Vulture flying.


    we came across a large flock of them in a field near sundown and alas I did not have my tripod so very few shots were worth anything 😦


Hearing from you makes my day!
