My hubby had been working out back the other day when he excitedly burst into the back door. "Look out the window!" he instructed, "You'll want to get a picture of that!" He pointed to a huge hawk sitting on a post in the field next to us. It was sitting calmly, wings fully expanded, simply experiencing the feel of the wind through his feathers.
I had never before witnessed a bird of any kind holding such a pose for an extended length of time.
Hubby grabbed the camera, took aim through the window and the hawk flew away as if purposely dodging the lens. "I'll take the camera outside with me and will get his picture if he comes back," he said as I nodded in approval, wondering whether we would be so lucky to capture such a shot.
When he later came in to hand me the camera, he told me that he had managed to get some pictures but the hawk never returned for him to snap that awesome pose we had earlier witnessed. I thought I'd share with you what he had stored for me in the camera: Do you see it???? Me neither.
*Sigh!* So much for a climactic captivation.
Meanwhile: Look what I got in yesterday's mail!!!
