Cooper’s Hawk and Prey   Leave a comment

March 2019Cooper’s Hawk and Prey — Image by kenne

Returning from a morning walk my eye caught a Cooper’s Hawk flying into a nearby Mesquite tree. After closer observation, I could see the hawk had captured a mourning dove. Since the tree was near my house, I quickly grabbed my camera and began shooting. 

Predator and prey
Each seeking to win the chase
A daily event.

When it comes to birds of prey,
the eyes have it.
You may not always see them
perch on a nearby limb
but they will always
have an eye on you.

“The more often we see the things around us –
even the beautiful and wonderful things –
the more they become invisible to us.
That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world:
the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds – even those we love.
Because we see things so often, we see them less and less.”

— Joseph B. Wirthlin
