Great story telling in harsh light. A lot of trust going on there too.

He was not happy with me, at all.
and I got busted by the park service. Saw the hawk about 50 yards out...stopped the car, well I did pull over onto the shoulder,
and then went walking toward the hawk. Got back to the van and the ranger was waiting to tell me this was not a designated
parking place. Told him I was wrong and sorry....should have showed him the picture :)

Sounds like you handled the situation well. :-)


LD, or Mike
Often mistaken, but never in doubt.

Gorgeous Wren. While we're working out a trade pact it'd be nice to get
some Fairys into the States. Don't know what we could trade...hummingbierds maybe?

Thanks Robert. Yes they are

I'm sure we could arrange that.
Let's see - along with the Wrens, maybe Fantails, but only if we can also offload Sparrows Starlings and Blackbirds  :p.

Very interesting shots. I'd hate to face a bill like that!
