That second shot took me a second to see!

That’s exactly why I really like that shot.

Wow Bill...an eagle with only one wing!:-P I'll bet he always has to fly in circles.;-)a

An Israeli F-15 Eagle flew with one wing with a happy ending:

Not sure if the link will work or not but if it doesn’t, do a YouTube search for Israeli F-15 one wing landing.

I just find it ironic that they’re both one wing Eagles.

Not a happy looking hippo, buddy! But a very nice shot.

Since you seem to be am authority on this subject, just what does a HAPPY HIPPO look like??

Wow...what an incredible video. I would never have believed that an aircraft such as the F-15 Eagle could possibly fly and land safely with one wing!

That's easy, Charles. The happy hippos have a smile rather than a frown (like the one in the picture has).:-P

That hippo knows you never smile at a crocodile.


Still waiting for the wisdom they promised would be worth getting old for.

A young male leopard drinks from a puddle in a riverbed in Mashatu Game Reserve, Botswana. I was there last week and it was great to see the bush coming to life after some good rains recently.
