Like a Deer in the Headlights

Only in this case…it’s like a bird in the Hawk’s sight…

I walked outside earlier in the week to find this Titmouse doing it’s best freeze tag imitation.

Sure enough, a handsome Hawk was perched on the far side of the yard, looking for his lunch.

You would have laughed if you could have seen the contortions I went through to try and get a clear shot of him amidst all the twigs and branches.  I looked like I was playing Twister without the colored circles!

Here is a cropped close up of his head.  It loses clarity, but is still pretty cool.

    Now that is cold hawks go after birds, rodents and snakes go to hibernation. I see these guys more often now. Nice captures Kathy! 🙂
