Friendly Red Tail Hawk

I was walking down Gulf Road in Valley Forge yesterday, when I saw a hawk flutter down into the weeds to catch a little bird.  A few seconds later he flew up with his catch onto a nearby limb and devoured his prey.  I took a million photographs and followed him around as he flew from one tree to the next trying to get rid of me.  He finally settled down and I got very close.  Then he fluttered down again right in front of me in the weeds looking for more prey.  I got down on my knee and took this close up.  So much fun.....

The Woods off of Ship Road

 I didn't get out today until about noon, but still it was so darn good.  I walked the trail in the woods off of Ship Road to the end.  First I found the damselfly, then the wood frog, then the wrens discussing life, then the cardinal grabbing a berry, and finally a whole slew of cedar waxwing.  Oh the thrill of it all.
