Woo! Caught him!
Some of you might remember; just about a year ago I tried several times, futilely, to catch a picture of the hawk/falcon who lives in my neighborhood and only managed to get a picture of him mooning me as he flew away.
Finally, today I was sitting in the kitchen watching the world go by, the rain and hoping for a thunderstorm when he flew up, landed on the telephone pole across the street from our driveway AND he sat there long enough for me to grab the camera and get a few shots! YAY!
Isn’t he/she gorgeous? We’ve been visited by birds before and there’s turkey vultures all over the place down here but seeing a falcon/hawk (whichever he is) in this suburban blight is just amazing.
