The Letter H And Spring Has Sprung!!

2008 ABC Along: The Letter H

H is for Hawk!

The pic is a bit fuzzy due to the fact that I was using a 12X regular zoom plus a digital zoom (not sure of the power....too lazy to pull out the book ).....and no tripod!!

We have a TON of hawks in our woods!! Which thankfully means we don't have mice or snakes around!

BUT......apparently they have quite a varied taste.....this is terrible.....a lady that lives across the "holler" was out with her new little malti-pooh and a hawk swooped down!!!! I'll leave the story at that.

And Spring has seemingly arrived overnight!!

This is the view from the back of my house with one of the dogwood trees.

As soon as the pollen stops flying I'll get my "yellow" porch cleaned and ready for some nice, leisurely weekend mornings!!

I can't WAIT!!!!

LOL, I have a picture of a hawk planned for H also. He was on my windowsill at work. You got a pretty good picture too.

Very beautiful hawk. I love birds of prey.

We have oddly enough, had a cougar in chicago and our area. NOw there is another. Very interesting occurences here in our area. I dont think I'll get a picture of it.

Uh oh. I'm taking it that the dog didn't make it?

Gorgeous picture of the hawk though!

Great pic of the hawk! We have a hawk that scouts our bird feeder (not good for the birds at the feeder). In the past week all of our trees suddenly have leaves and the dogwoods are blooming everywhere.

We have several hawks too! My worry is that they're stalking the baby birds that are just being born.

Nice pics as always...
