Boy is it ever so difficult to get a decent shot out of the side window while driving at a speed of 70m/h! So bear with me for the blurriness.
A hawk on a pole. Probably a red tailed, because of the colour of it's tail feathers.
but their colours where so distinct that I opted for "American avocets" in non breeding mode.
When we had lunch the other day I looked at a huge coal shovel parked on the ground.
Finally I found out: it helps to put the camera on manual. Then keep tuning the viewfinder while shooting multiple frames.
One of the shots will be sharp! :))
Another day I was scanning the darkening evening sky. What was that? See all those dots in the air!
And of course - the vast prairie landscape and endless sky.
For ever captivating.
The poem of the day
Saskatchewan Summer (Charles Nichols)
Wide the open spaces lie,
Fields of yellow cheerfulness,
Circled all by wheat and trees,
Ruled soft by blue and white
Roads to nowhere but afar,
Scattered perfectly with farms,
Fences sent for ages outward,
Clear broadness touched by prairie towns
Rippled ponds enclosed by rushes,
Distant rivers pulling streams,
Rolling earth, arms widely steady,
Fields and cattle, wooden barns
What great photos! I know what you mean - I never take just one photo, it will be too blurry for sure. Love the little birds in the metal holes. Yes, so cute! I've seen so many of those hawks sitting on top of poles - it must be a great roosting place to watch for movement in the grasses below... dinner! :)ReplyDelete
