I wrote a Haiku the other day about a hawk circling in the sky and searching for his food. It is a common sight for me as I live by a lake. So it was funny to find this e-card yesterday!
I hope you enjoy it and have a great Wednesday.

His eyes looked in mine
Piercing deep into my soul
and he saw the pain

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!

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