God has made many amazing and magnificent creatures, but birds of prey have to rank particularly high on the list.

A red-shouldered hawk has been visiting us recently, and last time he stayed long enough for me to change out my camera lens.

And take about twenty pictures.

Oh, how I love that "continuous shooting" option!


  1. Wow! Magnificent indeed! :O What beautiful feathers...I can't believe you had time to get your camera and take pictures! ;) But I'm so glad you were able to...thank you for sharing some of God's beautiful creation! :)

    How are you doing my dear? :) I pray you and baby and hubby are all well! :D I've been keeping you in prayer.

    Hugs! Love in Christ,

  6. I found your lovely blog through a link on the "Blessed Femina" blog, and I'm so glad you did! I just thought I would leave a quick comment, congratulate you on your wee bairn and wish you and your little family a joyous and blessed new year. May God richly bless you during this upcoming year.

    "Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is His reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate." (Psalm 127:3-5)

  7. So beautiful! My father is a liscensed falconer, so we have had an assortment of Red-Tailed Hawks, Red Shoulder Hawks, and Golden Eagles. I am still amazed by their beauty everytime I see them!

    Love your blog!
