portrait of a bird of prey--12/13/11portrait of a bird of prey–12/13/11

today i am elbow-deep in flour, sugar, and sprinkles…my focus is on holiday gift making/baking, so my camera is not at the ready like it usually is…but from the kitchen my husband said, “look at this hawk…it’s just standing on the lawn…” i can’t believe i was able to get my camera, put on the proper lens, slide open the back door, and actually walk slowly over to this dude…he let me get about 10 feet away before he had enough of me…he was in a nice place at a nice time of day, though, so he made for a striking image…
