Red Tailed Hawk with His Eye on Me

I was taking a photograph of a little stink bug this morning when I heard a lot of noise in the tree above me. I looked up and there was a young red tailed hawk being harassed by a lot of small birds. He was looking down at me with great curiosity. I only had my macro lens, but I pointed it up at the hawk anyway and took his picture. Such a cutie.

Blue Heron War (Click Top Photo to See what they are fighting over.)

I came across a great blue heron this morning who had just caught a huge fish.  The fish was too big to swallow.   Another Great Blue Heron approached to see if he might get a bite.  But instead they battled, the first one won and then went back to his fish.  Not sure if he ever was able to make the swallow.

Yumiko at Goucher

We took a little college tour through Maryland and Virginia last week.  Here is a glimpse of Yumiko at Goucher College right outside of Baltimore.  The campus was so beautiful I wanted to apply.
