+1 on shop cameras.  Besides just using it for a general building diary, taking a quick photo is a great way to document a clever solution for future use.  Much faster than taking notes.

The third one is interesting.  I guess the easiest way to gain airspeed to start with, is just to drop. 

I think bats have to do that, or can't lift off.  One was trapped in an inverted globe light fixture in one of the old houses I worked on, and I figured that was its problem.  Too slick to climb out of, and no way to drop, even with a large, wide open top.  We took those light fixtures down, and stored them.

Those are cool. It’s always interesting seeing some of the maneuvers and behaviors of birds. Love how blown out the backdrop is on the last three, especially in the one Tom mentioned.

I have some shots somewhere of a huge red tailed hawk who hunts the slough behind our house. Most of the time it’s grass, and there are mice out there. Can’t find that, but I like the lighting angles on this picture. Not bad for an iPhone picture.

If we didn’t have a fence I wouldn’t have it in this picture but this was shot from our back door. This was from our little Canon T6, don’t recall which lens

You can post them on YouTube, then put up a link here.  I don't know if there is another way to do it.

An old jet engine

That would make a cool black and white picture.

Ok lets try this.

Here is one video I uploaded. Hopefully this works.
