A regal visitor...



I posted a similar photo last year sometime, I think, but these beautiful creatures never cease to amaze me, so I may tell the same story twice. This hawk perched on my deck railing for a good fifteen minutes yesterday morning. There are bird feeders to his left and right, so I suspect that he had either just feasted on one of my little visitors, or attempted to and was just re-grouping before heading off. I know it's sad, but that's the way nature works. And he has to eat too.

I love this -- It must have been a thrill (even if it was a repeat visit)!

How wonderful is that? I always get such a lift when a raptor rests close by. Beautiful photograph!

He really must like you taking his photograph...which is awesome with the lighting. How beautiful and special to have him spend time visiting you. Maybe he wants you to paint him??? Glad you painted for therapy yesterday after your work day and your fence debacle. Merry Christmas to you.
