Oh Rune,imagine, just that thing happened to me about 25 years ago when I set my foot on England's shore in Dover, and the seagull was flying just exactly above me. What a welcome!
A very nice and precisely timed shot! ;)
My husband is devoted but sometimes stubborn as they all seem to be ?

Imagine the surprise that awaited me when I was watching the photo download and thought the oddness was going to be about a fishing net. . .

when I was here earlier, I looked at the red towel photo and then forgot to go back and comment on the rest so here I am again. Your comment on my flower post jolted my memory and I came back to see what I had missed on this post and your flower one.

A poem from my youth comes to mind:

Little birdie in the sky,
Why you do that in my eye?
I don't worry, I don't cry.
I'm just glad that cows don't fly!

Welcome to odd shots. Do come back again for it. I will add you to the blogroll.

I can relate to this. I've been the lucky recipient of various birds flying gifts to me-twice on top of my head, on my shoulder and hand. They say it's good luck.

It took me a minute to understand what I was looking at, until I read the caption. LOL.
Perfectly timed. I don't have a photo like this, and I agree with Katney, "I'm glad cows don't fly".

Thanks for the visit,

PS: To answer your question about HDR. Single frame hdr is a snap if you shoot RAW. In your RAW converter (I use Bibble Pro), adjust +/- 1 stop, or half stops, or some even combination of stops, and save these as separate photos. It's the same as photographing different exposures. Also, the advantage is, they are already lined up. No tripod.

If the range of light to dark is extreme, you can make 4 or even 5 exposures in your RAW converter and save these as separate files (pictures).

If you have any questions, e-mail me:

Or send me a photo and I'll process it for you as a test.

What a unique shot! Hilarious!

It takes an expert to capture this. Spots on the windshield -easy! But in flight - only Rune.
