This past weekend has offered exceedingly enjoyable weather and great reason to be spending time outside.
It was refreshing to start seeing the wildlife out and moving again
I love hearing the birds and insects chirping at dusk and dawn
it is something I have missed through the long winter we all faced.
Particularly I have seen many Red tail hawks witch are common but never the less extraordinary to spot.
I remember at a previous residence of mine on a city college campus, these hawks would be unusually present in the everyday routine.
because of the abundant squirrel population encouraged by high foot traffic and lots of dropped food/garbage, the hawks had a field day.
There was many times when the Hawks made the front page of the school paper, shredding an unlucky squirrel in a gory show of nature.
It was pretty awesome, unfortunate for the squirrel, but at the time I was Biology student, fascinated with nature and mortality.
Any way, I was not able to capture these hawks I witnessed in my own images, most likely because I was to busy enjoying the spectacle.
SO here are some great pictures by an artistic blogger who always impresses me with his photos and perspectives.
