I'm taking the day off--from writing, thinking, lists and pondering whatever lies ahead in the coming week. I've got a new book to read, chores are done, dogs are napping. My sun tea--chai this time--is delicious...cool and refreshing on a very hot Summer afternoon.
So, why am I posting right now when I could be reading?
A few minutes ago I was rolling up the hose after watering the back garden when the hawk swooped down for a drink in the new bird bath. Apparently he really likes the larger pool of water. I got my camera and took a couple photos, though he's become such a regular these days the excitement factor has waned a bit.
Except. Once I'd downloaded the photos, I got a good look at something I hadn't noticed whilst snapping the shots.
How utterly pleased I am to not be on this guy's rader. Click on the photo and check out those claws. Raptor--of the dinosaur variety--comes to mind.
