Captured today at Rick Husband Int Airport ... from Vance AFB.
I often wondered what birds must think of planes. This immature (and flightless) Meadowlark was sitting on the fence-line singing his heart out - but every time a talon flew by - he stopped and seemed to watch.
I kind of thought he was wishing that some day he could fly that fast. He was really tame and posed calmly (seemingly preoccupied by the air show) allowing me to patiently frame this shot.
Here's another shot - the Meadowlark singing as if to tell the jet he's a big bird too. The jet was louder.
