Sunday Walk: Part 5


and a surprise.....

Can't believe the hawk let me get about 20 feet from it.

We've been blessed with two wonderfully sunny Sundays in a row. Such a nice break from the grey cold January days. It was actually warm on my walk. Hope you all are having a great Sunday.

Thank you.

The hawk was actually quite large.
The brown leaf in front of the hawk is a magnolia leaf about 7" long. He had wonderful "eyeliner". I guess the dark around the eye cuts down on glare. Kinda like when a football player places the dark smears under their eyes. I was so excited, and just knew it would fly away any minute. So I kept snapping shots and I got with in 20 feet and decided that was close enough he was probablly hunting for a meal, and I didn't want to disturb him any more.

I adore the color and detail on the house in No. 3! Nice collection of shots.
