Before we get started!


We stood in the driveway and saw these two beautiful airplanes flying in formation overhead! 


I managed to get them in my viewfinder....


and keep them there!


It was something to see!


They were perfect for mosaics!


We were leaving to go to the Pruitt Trailhead to hike when we saw them.


The trailhead is near a small airport so we see some small planes when we are there too.


And this weekend was no exception.


We even saw a small jet fly over!

It was a beautiful day....73 degrees with a nice breeze.


The Robins are here this week too!

I'm joining Angie for Mosaic Monday HERE .

Wow! That was fantastic that you got to see those planes. Great pictures. Nice picture of the robin too. I can't wait until they return to us. Then I know Spring is really here.

Hello,

Great captures of the airplanes. It is neat to see them flying in formation. Sometimes looking too close together. Love the sweet Robin photo. Enjoy your day, wishing you a great new week!

Nice shots of the planes. I love your Robin and can't wait for ours to be here. Normally they are here all winter but I haven't seen them. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

So many American Robins spend the winter here it is hard to know when the first genuine migrant arrives. Won't be long before they are here, however.

Anne said...

Wow! Such a beautiful sight seeing all the airplanes in formation all together. I hope it wasn't too noisy for you. I hope you had a great hike!

Happy MosaicMonday

My dad who had been a WWII pilot used to rent small planes when I was young and take me for a spin. I loved it. Looks like you had a beautiful day. xo Laura

What a beautiful day!

Great shots of the planes. We have a small airstrip here in town so we get lots of small planes in and out. Lots of people here in town own planes. They have several air shows a year and it always neat to see the old planes. I just don't like it when their engines stutter! LOL!
Sweet robin!

Terri D said...

It is always great to see planes flying in formation like that! Good captures!! Our weather, until today, has been perfect weather to be out!!

Beautiful skies over your place...

Kate said...

73 degrees and robins - I can't wait!! Great shots of the planes.

Ann said...

How fun to watch the planes. Every time I see one I think of my dad. He loved flying. He owned his own small plane and would go out every Sunday when the weather was good.
Love the picture of the robin

Airplane aerobatics are so thrilling to see! You took so many good photos of them, Diane. Sometimes we hear the Air Force practicing overheard here--the jets are very loud.

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

I love watching planes fly over--used to see alot of the Patrick air force jets when I lived here before==but they stopped shortly before I left for some reason--
and yes it was a beautiful day here in Fl today--even went to the Zoo for a walk and a few photos before going grocery shopping(dont tell anyone--but I haven't done alot since I got home--achy achy!!! but I got some hand quilting done!!

Much💝love

Kit said...

What a treat for you to see them! 😊 Kit

Barbara said...

I enjoyed your airplane photos -- you did a great job with them!!! We have career aviators in this family: my father and one of my sons.

You have proven to us you can photo birds and aircraft!

Lorrie said...

Great tracking those planes. I usually find them, then lose them shortly afterwards.

Linda said...

Great shots of the planes! I like the robin too.

Angie said...

Diane - right place, right time - and ideal for Mosaic Monday!

Your new header is so spring-y - Spring Fever is definitely upon me, but I think it will be a few months yet before it truly arrives to Montana.

Thanks for linking up!

Danice G said...

Those planes remind me of seeing the Air Force planes over the Columbus Base in MS. Really amazing to see. You got some great photos.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

You are such a good photographer .... good eye and steady hands, both things I lack, especially looking up at moving objects. Great photos. Exciting to see robins here ...they are so common in the Pacific Northwest, but living here where they’re rarer has given me a renewed appreciation of them!

Su-sieee! Mac said...

It looks like robin was watching the air show, too. :-) Cool shots, Diane!

BeachGypsy said...

Pretty blue skies! I am always trying to snap the airplanes, but I rarely actually get one, ha ha LOL---by the time I snap, they are out of the view, ha ha!! Yours are great. It's warm here today, we are going for a walk. We've been gardening and hubby has planted bulbs and last night we got our indoor seeds going, can't wait to see them sprout!

Hi Diane, Neat photos of the airplanes and the pretty robin. You do a great job with your blog. Thank you for sharing and for your kind words on my blog. Best regards to you from Seattle! John

Pamela M. Steiner said...

Wow, you did get some great photos of those planes! I love seeing the small planes and wonder if they see me looking up at them! I noticed the robins Sunday morning at our church. Haven't seen any here at the house yet, but I expect they will be back. They always come on their way down south and then again on their way back up north. Fun to watch them as they usually come in huge flocks! Have a blessed and beautiful day.

ann said...

Blue skies and 75 degrees! Still snow on the ground here and so cold. Great photos of the airplanes.

Terra said...

The pilots are so skilled to fly in close formation and your photos captured them, well done.

Dawn said...

Being former military we used to love it when the air shows happened once a year. I went to one in Germany when I lived there, so cool to watch the fancy moves and get an up close look at all the planes. Great shots.
