We live in a newer residential subdivision with very small backyards. The usual bird sightings are doves and hummingbirds. So I was surprised to look up from the TV and see a hawk sitting on our backyard wall enjoying his lunch.
I'm physically disabled so I couldn't run and grab my camera, so I tried to get my wife's attention. She finally saw what I was gesturing about and grabbed the camera. By this time, the hawk realized he was being observed and I knew he was ready to take off.
My wife doesn't know how to use my camera, so I told her to JUST SHOOT!! Wrong lens, out of focus, and bad exposure, but I salvaged a couple shots before he bolted. It was a hilarious sight with my wife, in only her underwear, trying to sneak up on this bird.
