The hawk is back. I love to see these beautiful raptors. They sail high in the bright blue sky with vision that can spot a small mouse or vole that becomes a quick snack. I know they are called 'chicken hawk' by many people and I am certain they could carry one away. They are a protected species and I hope they will remain so. This wonderful photo was shot by sdgritton.

This buckeye was taking a siesta during the days of September. A frightening face to see if you were a bird considering it for a meal. Yes, a part of it's wing has been torn away but the beauty of it is not diminished.
