hungry hawk

When Hubby was on his way home, he drove by this juvenile hawk on our road as it was eating. I guess he was too hungry to care that a car was just a few feet meter away and didn't notice when I grabbed the camera and we drove back to see if he was still there. 


crazy flowers and conspiracies

 I'm not sure that my garden knows it's almost winter 
with this rose bud...

...and this lovely camellia. 

This is Freddy the Finch. He is the only bird that doesn't fly away when I open the window and throw out some bird seed. He even flies really close to the window when he sees me.

I'm beginning to think all the birds conspire to keep an eye out
for birdseed. The crowd seems to grow in size daily :)
