Just as I was about to load up my dinner plate the other evening and offer up a quick prayer of thanks, I happened to glance out the window and saw a different sort of dinner prey-er show up!
Leaving the sweet potato unbuttered and the dogs impatiently waiting for their Kongs, I snatched up my camera and fired off a few shots.
I wish I could have stepped outside without him flying away, but alas, I had to settle for taking pictures through the window, choosing to overlook the glass glare and the smudges. Hey – you get what you get and you don’t pitch a fit, right?
Besides, isn’t he absolutely gorgeous?
…and this fellow perch in this place…
…and must have decided it was a good spot to grab some grub!
He carefully looked over the yard in one direction, and then turned his attention to the other side.
