Closer To Home...

More and more raptors seem to be in the area lately.  I found a pair of Red-shouldered Hawks very close to home recently...





Present year round is the colorful Northern Cardinal...


A first ever sighting and photo opportunity for me was this Ring Necked Duck...



When wildlife is not visible an interesting tree will do...


I think I like the moody quality of this old Sycamore better...


As always, thanks for visiting and come back soon.
