Soft light (and mystery bird)

Somehow, I did not notice the bird until I uploaded photos. (The second shot is cropped from a less-dark photo, but it's still blurry with a point-and-shoot, sigh. Juvenile red-tailed hawk maybe?)

Enjoy your weekend! More at Ein Stück Himmel.

Pretty big isn't it. I like the look of those clouds, it seems to me as if this was early in the morning or late in the day. Am I right?

Una imagen que trasmite silencio, serenidad, donde el tiempo esta detenido.
Buena foto.
Un saludo, Ángel

The light is beautiful Lulu, I wonder if one of your readers will recognise the mysterious bird? Hope you have a lovely weekend.

How neat. I would love to see a hawk like this up close. Love the trees, Lulu. I have had a go with E S H :). Thanks for sharing! Enjoy your weekend. Don't they roll around fast!

A very nice looking, peaceful scene. The mystery bird seems to be enjoying the view too. Have a great weekend!

Thank you! (Peter - if only the Kookaburra made its rounds here! Jenny - yes, it was the end of the day, I love strolling under the soft light then! LOLfromPasa - hope you enjoy the ESH foray and have a calmer wkd:)

I wish it would happen to me too. I mean I am at computer downloading pictures and I see on one of them a bird. I tried to capture with my camera a few times the birds but no luck yet.

This bird is so touching. Great pictures!

Have a very pleasant weekend:)

Definitely a predator bird... a small hawk or falcon.

I too am surprised when I find out what else is in the photo. This was a happy surprise!

It's a hawk. Wonderful photo, Lulu!

Randy said...

Love that first photograph.

I was going to say hawk too. I would expect it to perch higher on the tree unless it noticed an edible critter below. :)

thanx for your pretty piece of heaven! :)

A delightful setting with a bonus! It does look like a hawk. No photos in a clothing store and cheese counter? I also was told not to photograph in a cemetery in my hometown FOUNDED BY MY ANCESTORS. They were afraid people would invade privacy by putting the pix on the Internet. Of course, that's the point! Find your ancestors' graves online.
