Blue devils

San Francisco is about halfway through an assault by the Blue Angels, stars of the Fleet Week air show that takes over the skies and sound waves every afternoon for four days. These nasty little buzzers roar through the Marina like a swarm of angry wasps. I know the whole display is supposed to inspire pride and patriotism, but mostly I feel sympathy for the enemy.

Awesome photo, Mia. How did you do it?

Not my photo, alas, though the jets passed close enough overhead for me to have taken it--if I were quick enough and not too busy ducking and covering.
