FLY AWAY

As 2014 “Flies Away” we bid farewell to another good year and look forward to 2015.

But wait, that’s not what I’m talking about, this blog is for the birds 🙂

Once again it was cold and dark for our walk so I didn’t get much. What did catch my eye was the red tailed hawk sitting in the top of a pine tree being harassed by crows. I followed it from tree to tree and got two shots of it perched in the orange morning sun.

It looked really puffed up, probably from the 26 degree F chill.

The pictures aren’t very clear because it was still pretty dark and I was hand holding my camera. I also used a little bit too much vignette to highlight the hawk but it’s what you get today.

I was hoping it would fly my way so I could try to capture it mid flight but it was not to be. It did however “Fly Away” hence the title of this blog.

Thanks again for walking with me this past year and I hope you have a really fun and safe New Year’s Eve!
