Blue Angels in Wyoming

What do I spy with my little eye? The Blue Angels F/A-18 Hornet fighter jets! It's the real deal. They did a fly by yesterday - 12 times they went by. Apparently it was for a photo shoot. They obtained special permission from the government. I have six fighter jets in my frame. There's a seventh off to the side and the photographer is in there. I read online that they did a similar photographic fly-by at the Grand Tetons on the 23rd. I don't care much about airplanes but this was awesome. Lucky spectators gathered outside to witness this unexpected, exciting, free! air show. The noise was incredible. 'Twas quite a thrill! I jumped up and down and screamed like a banshee every time they went by. I love to scream with trains and planes! I had to run outside in my pajamas because it was only noon, and you know my pajamas are highwaters due to serious shrinkage. Then I thought, "Hey! I should get my camera for this!" so I fetched my camera, ran back out, and each time they went by I had to decide whether to scream or take pictures. For some reason, no one came near me. Bwa-hahahaha!
