Wings and food

I thought I had an injured hawk but this guy was just working on a meal on the ground. I think one of the many squirrels about.

And yes the circle of life in nature is on display quite often being it surrounds me.

All I know is I wasted an opportunity to shoot more today and I’m rather miffed at myself. So I’ll try to make up for it tonight with some more focus on displaying some images here at home.

I need a longer lens. Or a very tall ladder.

I can’t wait to get some shots of the eagles my friend has next to his home.


New socks can change your attitude. I recently got a new pair of shoes. Now for most of the human race that isn’t much of an event but I look at shoes like a car. I don’t own many and I drive them till they drop. But while I was making that purchase a set of cushioned socks caught my eye.

I’ve never really worn cushioned socks before but today is a good foot day and that translates to a few more smiles. Thank you Sketchers. I think I’ll try a walk tomorrow.

Almost time for me to get my own phone. Since a phone was mobile the employer has always taken care of that need. I was one of the last holdouts that had a flip phone. My iPhone is a 5 I believe so an upgrade will be nice. I think I’ll get one this fall and start the transition so it won’t be an issue when I do pull the plug on the job that pays the bills.
