Wild Bird Wednesday

Join Stewart and the other bird lovers here ...
A bird in the talons is worth two in the bush!

Pictures look a little grainy?  Well, there is a reason for that ... a senior moment reason which you don't need to know the details of,  but ... with a little PS lovin' I was able to save the pictures and thought they were good enough to share.
Lady Hawk on my neighbors bush ... I spotted her while I was driving by so opened the window and started shooting (after I stopped the car, of course :)








Either she realized that the bush was too thick and she was never going to get at the prey,  or she didn't like that I was watching her ... she gave it up and flew away.  Sorry Lady Hawk, the prey wins this time.

  4. Mr. & Mrs. both hunt my bushes and yard. I hear them, see them, and find evidence. I told you they were active, so am not surprised you caught this. Great pictures.

  13. Wonderful photos Andrea. That's how it happens sometimes with great photo ops. At least you had a camera with you. Sometimes I'm in the right spot at the right time, but with no camera. One of these days I'm going to get a phone with a good camera so that I can be prepared for these "off" days. I rarely see a hawk in my area, so I do appreciate your photos. Pogo and I are going to the garden center today to see what we can find new for our garden. It will feel good to be out in the warm sun. You and Izzi have a fabulous day, hugs, Edna and Pogo B.
