The Man and His Flying Machine!

 We had a few errands to do yesterday, so we went out early in the afternoon.  As we were returning back home,  we saw this man flying about in the skies above us! When we stopped, roadside, to view  him, we were amazed at the amount of noise created by the “fan” to keep this aircraft afloat!

While I do a lot of work with my telephoto lens and often keep it on the camera body, I took it off after the balloon event. So, this picture was taken with a shorter lens. Sorry about the poor quality. By the time I changed lenses, (and it takes less than a minute), the man was gone.  We don’t see this kind of “contraption” very often!
