Eyes Wide Open – Week #21

Good Saturday morning!

It was an unusual week and I wasn’t able to get as many photos as I’d hoped so I have cheated a little and included two from a vacation to Ireland a couple of months ago.  I was so lucky that I got to take a lesson in Falconry, which is something I have always wanted to do.  It was amazing to walk through the woods with this beautiful hawk on my wrist and she would take off for a while and then return to me once I popped a mouse head in my glove!  Lovely!

All photos were taken on my iPhone

Here she is, just landed

What a beauty she is!

Now, back in Florida, this little Heron is less scary

I captured this pretty sky with a Pelican in flight.  Lucky shot!

This is Grace looking rather superior sitting in the warm sun

While walking Grace we spotted another turtle managing to camouflage himself in the woods

      I always think turtles are flatter. Do you think he might be a tortoise? I don’t really think they live here though. Ive seen a couple near here with similar markings 🙂

        probably denotes the type of turtle … maybe native to where you live!
