Duck!

Mallards on patrol,
One December afternoon.
A bored hawk watches.

I literally flushed the hawk out of his perch above the sidewalk. I was paying attention to the ducks, so didn’t see him until he swooped overhead on his way to a safer tree. The ducks didn’t seem to be too worried about the hawk.

that must have been a surprise finding the hawk like that! Thanks for your comment on my walks post, we didn't have the camera with us, otherwise there would have been photos! Though whether they would have been any good is another question.... Best wishes for 2008

I jumped when it started flapping!

I'll be doing some walking once my knee gets a little better. (bursitis)
