I had planned to blog about the mailbox birds. It was funny how much of a challenge it became to gather our mail without being flogged by momma bird. We wore hats, carried umbrellas, took the dog with us but nothing dissuaded little momma. It truly was really quite funny. And while I understand it's all part of nature, it was still a bit sad to think of the little birds being lunch for the young hawk.
Fast forward to today, we had another visit by a hawk. We've had a lot of rain recently and the frogs are having a field day in our backyard.
By the time I got to the back door with my camera, he had his prize and was sitting on our fence enjoying his treasure.
I was concerned that the sound of my camera was going to scare him away so I tried to be as still and quiet as possible.
He eventually went back to eating.
After about fifty pictures being snapped he seemed to realize I was standing on the deck.
He gave me a hard look
Then decided it was time to leave
I had my camera set for a fixed focus so this picture isn't as clear as it could have been
Good by neighbor.
Have a great weekend.
