As for the promised pics, on my way home from my Day Job today (I work in what amounts to the boonies!) I saw a couple of hawks sitting atop phone poles. Not sure which type of hawk , but I suspect Golden Hawk (only because that's one of the more prevalent species along with the Kite Hawk, but these boys were too big for that). They looked over at me when I stopped my car to get out and get a shot (I drag my camera almost EVERYwhere anymore... just in case...!) then, after I'd gotten off one shot of the 1st hawk and about 2 or three of the 2nd one, they took off. Guess they didn't like being "shot" at. (that's a pun, y'all.... laugh!) Anyway, I came home, cleaned 'em up and played with 'em a bit on picmonkey.com and here's what I have. May put these on the Etsy store when I reopen. We'll see. I'm SO seriously considering a photo section in the store, too.
Anyway, enjoy these lovelies:

He flew off right after this and I'm not good enough to
follow that fast of an action that up close, yet. I'll get there!
