This week's motif is "BIRDS TAKING OFF" - please post your photos here of wild birds captured while taking off.
Thanks to Florida-based Reyno for suggesting this week's motif.
Posting is voluntary, and if your bird pic doesn't fit the week's motif, you can post these as usual in the Bird Photos section. Only mods can open new motif threads, but all members can post and even guests can view the posts. Multiple posts are allowed too.
Let's post shooting info and standardize our presentation (see format of my first post) so viewers will know how the photo was taken:
