Wild Weekly’s Photo Challenge – Flight

I’m participating in the online adventure travel magazine LetsBeWild.com’s Wild Weekly Photo Challenge for bloggers.  This week’s Challenge is: Flying!

Question is, do stingrays really fly?  Or do they swim?  It’s so hard to tell sometimes. IMG_0248

I have seen these fly, but not very often.  The only time they fly is to get into the trees at night to avoid the predators. The almost national bird: The Turkey._RW_0015

Of course, if you really want to fly, you need something to get yourself into the air, but if you want to have a quiet time doing so, you’ll need to inflate a balloon!

Now, it’s time to get off the ground, but with many balloons, there will be some congestion in the air.

Now that we’re in the air, we fly among the California Condors, America‘s largest bird of prey.

Of course, they also need to come in for a landing.  They’re not so graceful on the ground as they are in the air.

When the Condor is on the ground, they look like the Grim Reaper. Don’t you think?

But what good is a bird of prey without their prey?  Here we have the Stellars Jay.

And the Mallard Duck:

I found this bird in Mexico at the Mayan Ruins near Tulum.  No idea what kind of bird this is.

Of course, we can’t forget our domesticated feathered friends like the parrot.
