Saturday's Critters


I had to zoom in on this red shouldered hawk sitting on my fence through the double paned window on my back door so it is a little hazy, but opening the door would have surely caused it to fly away. It was early in the morning and a little foggy too, but I think it turned out to be a pretty good shot anyway. There are a pair of them living in the woods behind my house and sometimes I'll see them both in my backyard at the same time.

Linking to Saturday's Critters.

Hello Lois, beautiful Hawk and photo. I spooked a hawk from my yard just by looking out the window. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

Lucky you! We saw a huge hawk on the golf course a couple of days ago but I wasn't able to get a photo of it!

Great photo!
Hawks here have a habit of flying off just an instant before I get the camera focused!
