Things That Fly

Foto Finish

Camera Critters

Today, I have a 2-fer!!  I’m participating in Foto Finish and Camera Critters.  The theme for this week’s Foto Finish is “things that fly”.

I absolutely love feeding the birds.  We don’t get a large variety in our backyard, mostly 2 varieties of sparrows.  However, we have had a Cardinal couple that has visited for months now and I love them!!  We also get Pigeons and Morning Doves.  A couple weeks ago, we were visited by a Bluejay and I’ve already shared a photo of him.

Much to my happiness, while my parents were visiting us last weekend, a Hawk started to appear.  It seems to be making a home nearby.  In the photo that I chose, you can see some straw or twigs in its mouth.  I haven’t seen it at all this week, but I keep watching.  I have to believe that it’ll be back!!

Here’s my Foto Finish and Camera Critters (click to enlarge)….

    I hope you get to see your hawk around some more. There are quite a few of them where I am – one has even nested in the microwave tower at the Sheriff’s station! I just love to see them soaring overhead. Great shot!

    I love the picture – and the framing with the characterful tree really makes it. You can wait around for a really long time to capture moments like this! Thanks, Amelie.
