Dedicated To The Spirits Having Flown

This pretty girl showed up a few weeks before Christmas. One day when I walked outside, there she was sitting on the power lines where you see her in these photographs. Same old story as with the groundhogs, I figured by the time I tried to go inside and get the camera, she’d be spooked and long gone. Not so. Just like the groundhog pups, she was waiting for me when I got back outside.

I reckon this to be chicken hawk, but she seems to brighter and more beautifully marked than what I have seen before. She sat there so quietly, and for so long, that I decided she might be sick, or maybe dazed on poison, or something. The was still sitting there forty five minutes later when I finally had to leave. But again it seems I am wrong. Because she continues to come back and sit in the same spot, or sometimes just down the way, on the same power lines.

Just today, I went outside and there she was again. This time, I got my camera out, trying to get the best possible shots, hoping that she would fly again where I could get a better shot of her wing span. She would have none of it. I walked completely up under the power lines, using my flash, and she just looked at me. I even tossed a couple of rocks passed here, but nope, she just sat there. In fact, it’s almost as though she stays in defiance when I start taking photos, because she did finally fly off this time – when I went to put up the camera.

    Uncle Fascist Wants YOU!

    Recently Alabama Senator Arthur Orr followed suit with other fascist socialists to require “restrictions” on how welfare recipients can spend the money.
