Today’s Bike Ride

So we're up on the observation tower at Jack Island in the Indian River taking a break and this amphibious ultralite goes flying by!  Quite unexpected.  I was hoping for some pelicans or other birds, but this will do.

This guy was having a blast just weaving in and out of the spoil islands.  The boat in the background is in the main channel of the intracoastal waterway.  You can tell it's dead low tide by the birds standing in the water.  The spoil islands were formed by the dredge material when the intracoastal was dug out.

Taken with a Nikon D40 and 55-200mm lens, shot at f/5.6, 1/1250 sec, ISO 200, focal length 200mm.  I like the way the airplane is framed by the reflection of the two light poles in the water.
