  1. Lovely pictures. I like the one of the hawk best because I love looking for hawks while driving. They’re everywhere but easiest to spot in winter without competing colors and foliage. Years ago when we still had a bird feeder, a hawk decided it was the perfect fast food location and set up shop for a couple of days. I didn’t see any birds with birdbrains enough to get caught, though, but I enjoyed watching him/her so closely.

    • Thank you! This one was all the way up the tree and not hidden in the middle of it.

      I saw a hawk snatching a pigeon once so I bet your birds knew to stay away. They’re not called birds of prey for nothing!

    • Thank you! I usually look down, very low to the ground to capture nature up close (haha, “up” when I’m down!) so this was a photo theme that made me think a bit.

  2. Thank you for visiting my blog today. I appreciate the time you took to stop by. May your day be filled with joy and peace.
    BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!

    • Thank you! We’re lucky to have that beautiful sky many months in the year (except the hot summer months). It makes for a nice uniform, contrasting background.
