Costa Rica Sloths

I have posted some aviation images elsewhere from my recent trip to Costa Rica but my camera and lens were packed really for the purpose of photographing some of the scenery and wildlife of this lovely country. Here are a few from my encounters with sloths.. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49619...

Road running helicopter - 13 July

Heading south down the A1 in Nottinghamshire on Friday afternoon. Overtook a helicopter on a trailer (possibly a Hughes) carrying the false registration 'K-HALL'. Anyone know its 'real' identity..?
