For some reason, this has been a rough week at work. Add to that a rough week after work. Today was the first day this week that I was able to come straight home. When I got home, look what was waiting for me in my front yard.
Way cool, huh? It had killed a squirrel and was eating in right in my front yard.
It's a red tailed hawk -- my favorite of the hawks. I was able to get really close to it, but the pictures still turned out a bit blurry. I was snapping them in a hurry on my phone, and the auto focus just wasn't acting right. By the time I got inside to get my big camera, it had flown away.
Probably because I let the dogs out. And yes, I know it's probably a she, given the size of her. But I'm not for sure.
Look what else is cool:
One of my bluebonnets is blooming again!
Another one is budding again, but four of the six I had have died back. I did manage to collect some seed pods from their first blooming. I might try planting them in my wildflower beds next year.
Well, Cody is heading back to college tomorrow, for his third year. Hardly seems possible.
Where does the time go?
