~Poetry, For now a Rest~

with her mate, she sits in her tree

exhausted after a day of nest building

knowing soon their essential skill as hunters

will be required to provide food for their young

for now, a rest

vivid colors cast the perfect backdrop 

to showcase her strong resolve to survive

as the beauty of this day lingers

a few minutes more

Look close and you will see two
Look close and you will see two

survival, a simple quest or is it

survival, a simple quest or is it
Another hunter, enjoying the peace at the end of a day
Last performance
Last performance
(the other hunter slowly moves our way)
A Silver Ending
A Silver Ending

I truly enjoy photographing the setting sun and these magnificent birds from a pier on Lake Hammond in Lake Louisa State Park.

    1. Sylvia, thank you! I so enjoy birding! We left Lake Louisa and traveled to Rainbow Springs State Park and this afternoon we had numerous species of birds flying around our site – so fun!
