Hot Dog!! I knew today was going to be a good day when as soon as I stepped out the door, I saw a hawk in my tree. Slowly I reached for my camera to get a good shot but scared him anyway and he took off.
Here is a close-up:
At this very second in time, he lifted from the branch and was turning direction in mid-flight to fly south. I love his wings! You can see light passing through them and also can distinguish individual feathers.
Here is my quick sketch. This moment is now preserved in time for me to enjoy over and over and over again. Today is going to be a good day.
