Well this is something I don’t see every day, a Cooper’s Hawk!
There wasn’t much bird activity on the day that this hawk made an appearance. The lack of birds is usually a sign that a predator of some sort is nearby. I resigned myself to the fact that there wasn’t going to be much to photograph after the hawk zoomed away, but hey, I’d gotten a shot of a Cooper’s hawk!!
THE POWER OF BEAUTY… A TINY LITTLE BIRD, WITH IT’S TINY LITTLE HEART, CAN AFFECT THE HUMAN HEART WITHOUT A SINGLE TOUCH .
SOMETHING TO BE THANKFUL FOR.
AFTER OLIVER GOT DONE WRESTLING WITH THE PRACTICE TIGER AND THE MOUSE AND THE DOG, HE WAS KIND OF TIRED. HE WAS GETTING READY FOR A SNOOZE IN THE SUN WHEN I NOTICED THE EYES BEHIND HIM…AND THEN I NOTICED HIS EYES…AND THEN I JUST FREAKED OUT!
IT WAS A WHOLE LOT LESS STRESSFUL UP ON THE SPACESHIP TAKING ALL THOSE TESTS…YOU HAVE TO READ A FEW POSTS BACK TO KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT.
THEY TOLD ME THAT I SCORED 1,700 OUT OF 2 ON MY TESTS. I GUESS THAT’S A GOOD SCORE BECAUSE THEY GAVE ME THIS REALLY COOL TATTOO.
I DON’T READ ALIEN WORDS REAL WELL…BUT IT LOOKS LIKE A STRING OF LETTERS….
THESE ARE THE LETTERS….M…O…R…O…N… I KNOW THAT’S SHORT FOR SOMETHING.
MAYBE “MOST ORIGINAL ROUTE OF NEURONS”…
MAYBE “MAGNIFICENT ORATOR ,..RADIANT NARCISSIST.”
SORRY, I STARTED OUT TALKING ABOUT OLIVER, I DIDN’T MEAN TO MAKE IT ALL ABOUT ME.
OUR DOG MAX IS TOO DARN HARD TO PHOTOGRAPH…HE’S PRETTY MUCH ALL BLACK, BUT HE’S GETTING SOME GRAY…HE’S TWELVE YEARS OLD AFTER ALL. SO THIS IS THE BEST SHOT THAT I COULD GET THE OTHER DAY. THE CRAZY THING IS, I KIND OF LIKE THIS.
So many bloggers are going to be affected by severe weather in the next few days, if they haven’t been already. Everyone stay weather aware and keep your bicycle helmets, motorcycle helmets, football, baseball, and riding helmets handy. They advise as always that you use a mattress to protect your head if need be. I’d like to add to those recommendations…put a metal pot on your head, Strap, or duct tape, two iron skillets over your ears. I’m sort of kidding, but sort of not…KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE SKY!
Hugs to everyone and stay safe!
