Ready, set, soar

Raise your wings. Test the wind. Let your hollow bones shift your weight up into your outstretched feathers. Feel the tightening in your pectoral crest. The wind is accepting you. It's flowing back and forth through your air sacs, lungs and bones. You're ready. Soar.

The scene is from a dolphin in the Mississippi River near the foot of Canal Street in New Orleans.

Triple A for concept and presentation, Steve. He's certainly seeking a modeling contract, isn't he? Well done.

Into the heart of sunset is absolutely stunning, but this one leaves me speechless! Great shot!
How do you feel will be the next Mardi Gras in New Orleans?
Have a great week!
