Part of a big flock of starlings, hanging out on high voltage power line supports. It amazes me how birds can line up on these kinds of wires and not get toasted.
Not too long ago, we saw an IMAX movie on helicopters. One segment showed the local electric company, PPL, performing maintenance on its electric lines. A person scooted out of a helicopter (already something I wouldn't do!) and crawled directly on to the wire. As long as the person and the helicopter touched no other objects, the whole technique worked just like a bird sitting on the line - no getting electrified!
It probably goes without saying that you could not pay me enough to take on that job :)
