He was on the ground when Mr. Savvy told me to get the camera and he flew up and landed on that branch. He just sat there and waited. And watched. And waited some more. He stayed a long time and then he was gone. He is a big one, too. I took this picture from my sunroom window with full zoom. My windows really are filthy. I need to clean them soon if I am going to keep taking pictures through them. I am using my Canon Power Shot SX 120. Seems to take pretty good pictures. This tree is out past my pond. Mr. Savvy was amazed at how good this zoom worked to make him look so close. Look at the water droplets on the branches. According to my bird book this fellow is a red shouldered hawk.
I am joining A Southern Daydreamer blog for Outdoor Wednesday. Please be sure and check out the other outdoor photos this week. With spring here now I am sure we will be seeing some lovely photos.
Thanks so much for stopping by and please let me know you came by. I love hearing from you.
Y'all come back now,
