Winter Red Tailed Hawk in Flight


We have an abundance of beautiful birds here, many of them being majestic birds of prey. The most commonly admired is the bald eagle, but we have hawks and owls as well. I just caught this red tailed hawk as it soared overhead when we were on our walk in our back garden. These raptors always make me hold my breath as they seem so proud, elegant and free in the skies over the poor earthbound mortals crawling around on the ground beneath.

The Country Moon is Free-132/365

Unlike the moon in the city, the clean, pure looking sickle moon in the country is unfettered and floats free above the earthbound trees, silhouetted against the sunset.
