That's some lens you got there, Fixer! Nice clear shot all the way from Ft Mac to Kelowna. Maybe I could borrow it for birding sometime ... ?

Haha, my parents live in Winbuck, Mom was out in the garden while it was flying over. She's pretty quick with the shutter.

I don't know if any of this traffic is related to Girls Fly Too in Abby this weekend. My DIL will be refueling in Kelowna Friday, on the way to the airshow, which is Oct 2 and 3.

A trip down memory lane!
If Putin stopped, he'd be saving Russian lives as well. Never thought the right would have a field day but June 24/2022 it is.

I do not believe in "chem trails" but I have to admit I saw something very strange last night. Around midnight I went outside and looked up and saw a series of strange looking clouds. Parallel rows of long narrower cloud like structures evenly spaced. Right over Kelowna. I tried to take a pic with my phone camera but all I got was a black screen. If I ever see them again I will try with my better camera. I am assuming they were a natural phenomena but I have never seen anything like it before.

Cirrocumulus. They indicate fair but cold weather, which seems to be the trend we are entering.

You sure they weren't noctilucent clouds?
