Sad to See, and Seeing What We Cannot See
As I drove to work today a dark lump on the edge of the road near a buddy’s home caught my attention. I quickly recognized a barred owl, probably involved in a collision with a car, was the victim.
Dead owls always seem to sting a little bit more than a dead raccoon or ‘possum. Owls are source of entertainment for me when they call and I enjoy searching for them during my hikes. It is just sad to see them dead along a road.

Later in the day this wet red-tailed hawk was spotted. Rainy or not, wildlife must hunt to eat to survive. This one was doing its best.

Tonight I recruited Kristy to assist me with some photography experiments I have been thinking about. I have wanted to freeze action, specifically something hitting water at the point the impact waves are visible. After a few hundred drops of a fishing bobber I finally had a few photos interesting enough to share. You can bet I will be working on improving this.
