    All things airborne. Difficulty: subjects must have wings.

    Theme suggestion courtesy of jpatten–thanks!

    This is similar to the theme Aerial Photography that we did almost 1.5 years ago.

    Guess I will have to get out my longer lens and scare up some birds for this theme.

    For this theme, do helicopters have wings? Wikipedia says they are a kind of “rotary-wing aircraft”.

    Good question about helicopters. In my mind they’re blades and not so much wings, but defining them as a “rotary-wing aircraft” does make sense, and in light of that I’d think they would count. Any objections, jpatten?

    damn, wrong thread. how many ways can i mess this up. but at least i got my picture into the world of farktophraphy. it was a late addition to the concept of trees, and i like that picture because of what the sky is doing behind it.

    Pardon me for posting in the wrong thread.

    damn, wrong thread….

    No worries, that happens to all of us from time to time. 😀

    FYI: If you look at your own posts there’s a little X-out button in the lower right hand corner that lets you delete your own posts.

    Nice photo BTW.

    Hmmm…
    I will allow Helicopters, The blades ARE wing shaped and do provide lift through the Bernoulli principle.

    thank you very much for your kind comment about my picture.

    however, i appear to be too retarded to find said button. I will continue looking for it. I’m taking meds that make it so that I’m too stupid to find the space bar from time to time so anything else is something to celebrate. 😉

    The “X” to delete button disappears if someone else has replied to your post. You can always edit your post, though.

    That picture is pretty cool, btw.

    oh, found it now. i guess it just expires or disappears after a while … maybe they figure that you ought to live with it after it’s been up a while.

    I’m too stoned (legally) for this. I should just charge up my camera and take some stoney pix. 😉

    It’s fun to do. That’s what happened here: http://abandoned-alaska.com/coppermine/thumbnails.php?album=28

    Does this ultralight fit as a winged thing?

    Well I just looked it up on Wikipedia and they say yes it is.so I have a different shot of the paraglider for the contest.Now to go through my five hundred pictures with seagulls in them.Or the Geese.We get thousands of them every year on their way to and from Canada.

    Yes It would, the wing may be really flexible but its a wing…
