Good Day: Falcon Bad Day: Squirrel


As much as it breaks my heart to see something like this... such is the circle of life. I was walking out to my jeep when I heard black birds making a ton of noise in the tree across the street. Upon closer look I saw this falcon in a low branch. It's very rare to see them so low. I walked closer, and he flew away from me. When he lifted off for flying I finally saw what all the ruckus from the black birds was about. He had his lunch, and the black birds were waiting for the remnants. I immediately grabbed my camera and took the shots. What an incredibly bad day for the squirrel. : (

Good falcon! Damn squirrels! They keep digging in my garden on the side of the house. Those beagles try, but they're just too fat to match the speed of the squirrels.

It's the circle of life maaaan. Lesbiaaaan seagull.....
