At one point the helicopter landed on the truck and refilled, but of course I missed getting the shot.
great shots! i especially like the 3rd and 5th ones. :)
Beautiful photos. I love the first one.
Wow! Interesting sight and impressive shots! Thanks for sharing and Happy WW!
Haha, thanks for making me feel better!! At least the last part of your comment did!! Actually, it made me laugh and laughter is the best medicine, right? Great pics of a helicopter duster, never thought it'd be that interesting!!
That can't be easy. Well done, Lisa!
That's cool! Happy WW! :)
Hey lisa, thanks for dropping by, you are not far off, that rose pic was taken at a friend's wedding :)Fantastic pics! Love the helicopter! I like to take pictures of planes and stuff, but so hard to get a good shot.
Love these chopper shots, the 3rd shot is too good.By the way thanks for taking the time to leave a comment on my blog. I m adding you to my blogroll to stay updated on your posts
Very interesting... I have never witnessed anything like this before.Advanced farming techniques are rare in developing countries.
Great captures! Happy WW!
I spend a lot o time at a freinds farm throughout the year and I have never witnessed something so cool like that. Where is this farm at? Everytime I go up to the farm I always drive around and take pictures. Something about farm land is so peaceful and surreal!!Thanks for sharing. They were some of my favorites!
Those are some cool pics!
Wow...what an interesting series! I've seen airplanes used as crop dusters, but never a helicopter! Neat. You see such interesting things *whine* :-)
I have seen crop dusters but never by helicopter, cool shots.
Those guys are fascinating...though a bit nerve-wracking...to watch. Then I wonder what it is they're spraying :-/ Great shots!
Great pics! Very cool.
I'll bet seeing the helicopter landing on that truck was quite something! We have a lot of crop dusters in the North end of our county but they're all planes - I've never seen a helicopter do that before. Very cool!
Despite all of our farmland in this area, I have never seen that. Very cool!
Those came out great! Makes me want my zoom lens even more now.
great shots! Love the red truck too! did it land on the truck?? wow! happy ww :)
I've never seen a helicopter crop duster before. Cool pics. Happy WW!
Very cool, Lisa. How bright the day looked - perfect for... crop dusting, apparently!
You certainly did NOT miss the shot Lisa! Beautiful I say!
Awesome close-ups! I know how hard that is because they move so fast. Hopefully you didn't get "dusted" as well.
That sure is something we don't get to see in Belgium! No need for it, it rains enough as it is!
That's amazing! Great captures...
Those are great. I have never seen one of those. Happy WW
Very nice shots! I really like the last one of the truck. Kinda reminds me of a Hidden Valley Ranch Commercial. LOL!*HUGS* Hope all is well with the family!
Well, I've seen lots of crop duster airplanes, but the helicopter is a first for me. Nice pictures.
Wow,that is something new to me, a helicopter crop duster :D
That is really neat! Hubby even had to come and gander. We are very into helis with the kiddo around.
I've never seen that before. Very cool. Thanks for sharing.
That would have been a great shot! But those you have are not too shabby either! Cheers, Klaus
What wonderful shots of the heliocopter dusting crops. I’ve seen planes that do this but never a heliocopter … though we do have heliocopters and planes that do water drops to fight fires here in So Cal. Thanks for sharing ;--)Hugs and blessings,
Never seen anything like it. I LOVE the shots with just the helicopter and the clouds. And the last one with the green field and red truck is terrific, too.
Informative post, thank you.
Excellent photos, however I feel sorry for the farmer who owns the crops. Having been a duster for over 30 years and having flown both fixed wing and helicopters, airplane spraying is the way to go for best treatment and application. Helicopters are best for the pilot because they can do a lot more work in shorter time periods. But the farmer is only getting 25% coverage on the target area of the plant vs 60% target coverage for the plane. Helicopters blow the spray down to the ground, whereas plane spraying allows the product to settle on the plant. Ivy league studies back up this information as well. I just wish chopper pilots would quit being so greedy and stop feeding co-ops and farmers with bogus information about the advantages of heli operations.
