    Frigate birds in flight

    Hi. This title is quite obvious, as they seem to never land! . They can keep themselves in "flight mode" for over a week! These ones were flying not that high this time (still high, though ). Processed this morning. C&C welcomed. Thanks for viewing.

    Lovely, with the 3rd and 4th being my favourites. I think the 2nd is too far away.

    Otavio,
    Beautiful photos.
    I like #1, #3 and #4.
    I agree with Christina, the photo #2 is too far away.
    Cheers,
    Antonio.

    Hi Antonio:
    Very nice in-flight photos of Magnificent Frigatebird females. In Hawaii they are called Iwa or Great Frigatebirds. I am fortunate to have some protected freshwater ponds near my home where they come to drink most mornings after a night at sea. Truly gracefull as they ride the air currents above the ponds swooping in to take large mouthfuls of fresh water.
