    These were shot under much less than ideal conditions, but I could never pass up a series with an RR flip. I did the best I could with the processing, but they are still a little on the dark, gloomy side. Shot with the D2H / 300 2.8 + 1.4 TC.

    Thanks folks. I waited almost a year and a half before getting my first flip, and I get three in one day. Guess persistence does pay off. :rolleyes:

    Thanks Gale. I can't take credit though. I think these guys used to be in the circus or something. What performers. :rolleyes:

    Thanks again guys. I'd never seen an in-flight flip before either although I'm sure that Ron has gotten them. I was pleasantly surprised when I got home and saw this one. :smile:
