With Spring just around the corner I cannot wait to get some shots of my favorite things. One of the first will be my beloved Daffodils, go figure, and then hopefully some time soon some of my favorite flying things. I love when the bees show up and the Hummingbirds get up North but I really want to get some more pics of the wonderment know as a Damselfly. Till then here is one from last year.
As I was looking for the previous Haiku/Short poem I came across this shot and had to find a way to share it. So I decided to do Ese’s Weekly Shoot & Quote Challenge- Hot Part II .
For this weeks Ese’ s Weekly Shoot&Quote Challenge – Hot I am using one of my photos and a simple poem I wrote. I looked at a lot of quotes on Hot and found several I loved but I was drawn toward this instead. In the last eighteen-months I have lost the only two people I know who unconditionally loved me and had many of my old convictions challenged as well. At times like this one truly feels they are on fire. I feel this is a go0d thing to be severally challenged, even if it is just us looking at ourselves and testing if we are true to our humanity and all that entails. I wrote this at the beginning of that part of my personal journey.
As I was walking from my car to the house after work today I spied something sitting on the power wire going to our house. I came in a grabbed my Canon Powershot SX10is and took the following shots. I know we have Red-Tailed Hawks, Barred Owls and an occasionally a passing Peregrine Falcon but I cannot identify this raptor. A little help from any birder watchers would be helpful. Till the next time, Enjoy!
(Side note: Spell check did not like the way I spelled raptor and changed it to rapture. That is why I need to edit my stuff a little closer).
