I was really wanting to go out and about today some, but just wasn’t able. I was telling my husband how much I wish I could get outside today. And he asked if I would like for him to go around and take some photos for me. Of course I said yes. The photos in this post are his.
First up, a Broad-winged Hawk ( Buteo platypterus ) sitting on a power line:
I wish these photos were a tad sharper. But these images were taken from very far away, so this is the best he could do, given the excessive distance. I thought this one was particularly interesting. He knows he’s being spied on, and he’s turning his head almost all the way backwards to see:
In this next one, he caught him mid-feather fluff:
Next, just a couple of shots of the creek nearby. I spent most of my time here growing up playing in the creek or in the woods, with a dog or two by my side. :) Those were good times. :)
I’m sure I would still be doing the same things now if my body would let me. Except now I would probably have more than two dogs tagging along, 3 kids, and a camera.
