I hadn't noticed but they are really darn near identical even down to the feathers. On the trailing bird you can see a slight difference with a feather sticking out on the leading edge of the right wing about where the dihedral starts?
Great capture, and from the sounds of it, you used to be in the flight industry??? Haven't heard anyone use dihedral and leading edge when describing birds *LOL*
Nice formation flying - excellent shot!
Thanks folks. was one of the better ones of the weekend. weather, other poeple and critters just wouldn't cooperate. better luck next time. Did get a few things tweaked out so not a loss by a long shot.
