I was going to tell you more about our vacation - that can wait. It was very warm here on Thursday - and when Don got home from work he asked if I wanted to go for a cooling ride in the country - and the answer is always yes! We were enjoying the newly mowed hay fields and pretty flowers in the gardens - when I spied a hawk - way across a field - I think he was looking for dinner among the rows of newly mowed hay.
He was so far away that he looked like a stick - but luckily I spotted him - and zoomed in to get a close shot.
He was looking all about - I'm sure he was wanting some dinner
We drove past that field - turned the corner - and LOOK - up on the top of a telephone pole (what will they call them when we no longer have telephone lines?)
A Red Tailed Hawk - right there - posing for me
Well, more than likely he was also looking for dinner, but he was there for so long I prefer to think that he was posing. They usually fly off so quickly
A little scratch - caught that just right!
He seems to be checking his foot
Back to looking for dinner
It was almost 7 p.m. - not usually a time when we see hawks - and there were the two of them right near each other
He gave a call - and off he went. This is one of my favorites!!
