Red Tail Hawk

My best friend called me the other morning and said
grab your camera and head out..there is a Redtail close
to your house. So off I went! We had this conversation
only a day ago about how I should see hawks on this road
but never do! Dah! Well, here he is.

It is a heavily traveled road and not much room to get
off on the side, so I pulled over with flashers blinking and
used the burst mode to get oh ahhhh about 150 picts.

He paid no attention to me and hopped from one tree to
another and kept his eye on the prey I couldn't see

You always wish you are CLOSER or the light is BETTER or
there was more COLOR, but hey it is what it is..
I took what I got.

He sure was intent on breakfast

But he flew down a couple times and came up empty handed

Fearing my life on this very busy road....

I left him to his work and went home.
Thank you bird girl for the tip!

A Short Road Trip...

There is wonderful joy in leaving the city behind and
taking the path that leads to pine covered mountains
and less traveled country roads. This is a collection
of pictures that came to life in my lens.

The hand of God landscapes so much better than a human hand

Birds look so pretty in a natural setting

A surprise hawk sighting
