Red-Winged Missile
Photographer: Dennis Jones
Location: Monon Center West, Carmel, IN
Story: 
I always marvel at birds mastery of flight, and here's another example. I often see birds tuck in their wings for a second or two while in flight, presumably to reduce drag and perhaps lower their altitude a bit. I just happened to snap this shot as this female Red-Winged Blackbird was doing this very thing. I love observing birds and all of Nature!
