Caption: One of the helicopters had a snorkel instead of the usual bambi bucket. Here it is about to drop down to siphon water from the lower pond for another drop.

Thanks, Gil.

Yes, the fire is out and only the "mop up" remains. We were lucky.

Great shot. Neat to watch them suck up that water. Seen them close up and also the Water Buckets scoop up a load of water. I would rather not have the ocassion to have to witness that.
Great series. 10's on all. Stay safe. I am assuming the fire is out or at least contained.

About Doesiedoats

Doesiedoats

I’m a native Oregonian, born in Tillamook and reared in the greater Portland area. After working in the Bay Area in the semi-conductor industry as a Human Resources Representative, my husband and I retired in 1999, returned to Southern Oregon and settled in the Williams area. Photography interests started early on with a Kodak Box camera and later a Kodak 616 given to me by my father, a semi-professional photographer. After many years of film cameras, the advent of digital photography has expanded my interest in the hobby. My camera is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100. The Pacifica Gardens property has become the preferred subject of my photography because of its natural beauty. I have captured all four seasons over the past twelve years. I’m pleased to be able to share some of those photos with my WU friends. Please visit my web site via the link below.************************************************
