I will be linking up with Judith for:
This is one of the most attractive Red-Shouldered Hawks that I have ever photographed. I see it often and it has been moving closer to the area where I live. We already have a couple of pairs and so I am not sure what shall become of this beauty, but I find it stunning~
Twice this week I had appointments and on my return home, I took a short walk each day at the Anchorage Trail. Both times, I caught up with the pair of Red-Shouldered Hawks there.
The White-tailed Deer and I sort of surprised each other and I was probably too close, but she was not snorting, blowing, or stomping and so we made it past each other on the trail, in that she took off and I kept going...she had a young buck accompanying her, but he was skittish and I got no images of him~
En-route both days, I saw a total of 5 American Kestrels working utility wires and one in a tree. I captured images of 3. They are so pretty!
There are still signs of what was this past season, from leaves still hanging, 2 hornet/wasp nests in the same tree...oh my... wonder how many times I walked under these and never knew~
The images of the Red-tailed Hawk were taken through the windscreen and so not super crisp, but still workable.
The land below is where I walk at the Anchorage Trail. I like staying on the grassy trails if possible.
Don't you love the perch that one of the Red-Shouldered Hawks positioned itself on...;)
