Between the joys of being a Nana, the sadness of being a mom, the need to paint, and the duties of life I haven't been visiting blogs on a regular basis lately. This week I sat down. Today I caught up with you again, Mark. I'm in awe of the wingspan of this hawk! You must be a patient man to click at just the right moment. Hope things are well with you. Carole
Oh Mark! These are amazing shots! I love how the textures and shapes and even the colours of the hawk in the first photo are duplicated in the curves of the branch and its bark and the lichen growing on it. And the hawks in flight are so detailed they are nearly surreal - nice framing too. Fabulous! Thank you.
Just beautiful Mark. Those under feathers are wonderful. Hope you're not suffering as much as other Canadian bloggers I've read with the snow!
I finally tracked down a copy of Ted Hughes "The Lupercal" - holed up on a spring blizzard day getting drunk on his phrasing. It's a toss up between "Hawk Roosting" and "To Paint a Water Lily"...thank you.
