Despite being on vacation, I had to go by work for about 30 minutes this morning. The sun was out and beginning to erase the chill of the night so I grabbed my camera before leaving home. There is an eco research area near where I work that is part of the Museum of Natural Science and I often see several hawks flying over the fields looking for food.
This morning I had the opportunity for close observation of form and flight. On several previous visits and again today, when I walk the hawk flies overhead watching. Little field mice scurried through the grasses as I walked by. I kept expecting the hawk to swoop down and eventually it did. Mouse for breakfast.
