If you read yesterday's post you know Hubby and I had been out for a Sunday drive when we saw the barn in my post. After I had taken those photos I got back in the Jeep and as hubby began to pull forward I noticed this hawk in the field beside of me. Hubby stopped and I got a couple of shots. Of course the hawk was way farther away than the capability of my lens and I was shooting into the noonday sun but he posed and I clicked.
By then he knew I was there and off he flew. National Geographic won't come calling asking for permission to publish my photos; but, sometimes it's experiencing the moment that counts and I'm grateful to have the opportunity to live in the country and enjoy nature's little surprises on a sunny Sunday afternoon.
(Clicking to enlarge the photo should help in seeing him a little better.)
