_53F7904 Sharp-shinned Hawk juvie EXPLORED

    Newer Older

    One of my favourite things the past week has been to sit out on the back deck and take in the autumn beauty....the colour, the smells, and of course the birds. My patience paid off today as this ssh appeared about 10 feet in front of me. This is a full frame shot and I barely had time to compose before he disappeared in a couple seconds. Had I not captured this, I may have thought I was seeing things, it was so fast.
