From my kitchen window I spied the resident red-tailed hawk across the yard checking out possibilities for dinner. Of course there are mice out and about, but a number of birds nest in the pasture grasses in front of where he was perched, too. So I got my shot, then decided to spook him, and he flew off..

.. I`ll be catching up with comments, etc. as soon as I get my regular internet equipment back.. am still using temporary gear which has a tendency to freeze on me..

Thank You Michele for the spotlight.. it is very appreciated!

And.. thanks to all of you for your comments, etc.. I feel so bad that I am unable to post comments, etc yet.. but will hopefully soon be able to.

    They may have a killer instinct, but are a beautiful bird in flight and on a fence post.
