It's Saturday and time for Camera Critters!
I celebrated my birthday with one of my young baseball buddies by
having brunch at Canopy.
She knows I not only love baseball (especially college baseball)
but I also love birds.
She took me to a neighborhood near both of our homes and look what we found!
I did not go prepared.
I only had my Lumix point and shoot with me.
While I saw the hawk in the tree, I figured there was no way I'd capture him.
But look ... there he is -- not far from his nest.
He looks a bit put out!
Perhaps he was peeved that I was making over all the baby herons.
The hawk and his family seem to live in harmony with their other bird friends.
This is an area, in the middle of town, that is known for the nesting of Night Crowned
and Yellow Crowned Herons.
Cute little babes, aren't they!!!!
I took lots of shots, but between my excitement at finally seeing the little ones
and their constant movement,
this was the best capture of the babes.
What a treat!
Wishing YOU well, much joy and a lovely weekend!
