Have birds ever reminded you of super heroes? Tonight I tried to captures images of flying birds. The house sparrows in our yard were my quarry. Unfortunately, freezing a bird in mid-flight is pretty difficult, but as I was watching the birds jump, dive, climb and leap, all in mid-air, I couldn't help thinking about Spiderman swinging through New York or Superman darting around Metropolis. Although house sparrows are frowned upon by many, these little Birds are pretty amazing acrobatic creatures. Here are my somewhat fuzzy efforts. The photos have been cropped and sharpened.
