Too close to the sun?

Hi everyone,

I saw this guy flying along the beach and thought of Icarus.

Do you suppose those Greek gods invented these things? They look safer than wax and feathers though not by much.

  1. Gorgeous pic! When we were in Austria two years ago, we saw many of these paragliders or whatever they’re called launching off the mountains above us. We would sit it our little electric boat on Hallstatter See and watch them drift down. Later, we went UP the mountain and got to watch a bunch of them take off. It’s a beautiful thing–poetry in the air. Thanks for the memory-nudge!
