Those mid-air shots are really impressive, if they're not photoshopped ;)

Here's a couple of pics I took a couple of weeks ago. It's from a butterfly house outsidde Stockholm, so maybe that's cheating, but nice pictures anyway... ;-)

Yeah I would agree.


Interestingly, Portland International Raceway (where I took these pics) actually has some pretty good stuff for nature photography.


It is surrounded by sort of acreek river thing and so it has lots of birds (eagles, herons, gooses) and I've seen a few beavers and im sure there is deer sometimes because of the water and grass.On the inside of the track there is a big swamp so it has brids, snakes, frogs and lots of flowers and plants.It obviusly has lots of insects (butterflys) and stuff.

It's good if you get bored of the cars, or they stopp runnign for an hour or two.

There i salso a golf course right on the other side of the stream to watch

this is the swamp:

Wow, i had no idea Portland IR was so diverse. I should have gone up there for ALMS this year... guess I'll mark it down on the calendar for next time. Very nice shots and that alphabet is spooky.
