A duck and 2 flagpoles. To create some blur, intentionally shot at a slow shutter speed with image stabilization off. Movement of the trees, leafs, and water courtesy of a windy day.

Put the drone up over the frozen lake today, after a 2.5mi walk of it's perimeter this morning. Ice is still very thick but lots of cracking (sounds) going on.

I didn't pay attention, but I'd guess around 200'. I have a DJI Spark, it is very small, maybe 10" across, and it was windier than I had expected. Still AMAZED at how stable those things are in the wind. You can even watch them tilt into the wind gusts when they happen to stay exactly where you park them in the sky. The drone is SW limited to 400' altitude tops. Put it up there, and you can't even see it anymore.

You’ve got some good elevation there. My mavic mini gets batted around a bit when it gets around 100’.

It is amazing how well gps can keep the drone steady in winds.

I have been photographing the Peregrine Falcons that live under the Mississippi River Bridge at Hannibal for the last three seasons. For the first time for me I saw one in a tree with a background besides sky.

Beautiful. After reading CJ Box’s Joe Pickett series, I have learned great respect for these magnificent birds.

A smattering of loaded up cutting board shots. Whenever I make a cutting board for someone, they send back a pic of it in use. Put together the montage in photoshop.
