Thanks so much everyone, I was quite happy to have the sun come out yesterday, I figured that this guy was not going to be here for long. Got home tonight and he is not around, I would bet that he knew that big storm was coming, just happened to find my little patch. It wouldn't surprise me if he took off last night on a nice tailwind is down there around the gulf, maybe around Sharon's or Gators anyone of our southern friends feeding up for a flight across the Gulf, my good fortune he picked here. I took alot of shots yesterday, still sorting thru them all so I hope I don't over do it and post too many.

jodelak, you would be surprised how much they watch me, this guy in the perched shots had a steady routine, right, me, left, me,right until another Hummer dropped in, then it is off to the races. I am not comepletly sure on the shots when he has that not so happy look and is looking straight at me but I believe that those looks are intentional towards me, just see it happen too many times. Great stuff though, Thanks again.

Thank You Hayath, that one is my favorite too, it is hard to tell but I think there are 2 separate sweeps of the wing closest, at first I thought there was a left and a right but the closest wing (ghost) starts at the bottom on this side of him. Probably does not mean much but I think it is 2 sweeps in that 1/125 time frame, looks cool to me anyhow, Thank You again.

Thanks again everybody, I hope I don't over due it on this guy, I got a lot of shots, glad of it now that he is gone.
