I was having breakfast when I spotted him on a cold day in March so I grabbed my camera and dashed outside, hoping to not spook him. He was clearly more interested in the sparrows than any silly photographer and I snapped pictures until I nearly froze because I'd run out without putting on a coat or gloves! While revisiting these images the other day, it occurred to me that some of them tell a story so here you go.
Is this my best side?
Or is this?
OK, I can hear the sparrows... but where are they?
What? Those sparrows are hiding in the rose brambles???
That's too bad... I think I'll see what's on the other side of the garden.
Aren't you tired of taking pictures yet?!
Between the previous perch and this one, he landed within 10 feet of me on the fence... I don't know who was more surprised between the two of us... the hawk or me! He didn't stay long here and by the time he landed here, I'd been out for 20 minutes or more in freezing cold so was finished taking pictures anyway!
I'll be posting this to World Bird Wednesday later on... if you haven't found your way there yet, do drop by and have a look!
