Great shot! Was it a hawk??

Raven said...

hi lone beader - not sure... hawk or a crow... I was so pleased to catch it... I swear they see me pick my camera up and wait for me to be ready and they off they go...

Shrijnana said...

I love this image. The bird looks so free.

Shannon said...

Looks like a buzzard. Ugly birds up close, but beautiful in the sky where they can soar for hours without flapping.

Raven said...

hi shrijnana - doesn't it look like so much fun to do that? I love the way they float and twirl and look like they are just high on life.

shannon - thanks... you are probably right... I love to watch all those big birds fly and dance in air.

laura said...

Robert said...

Clouds are so very peaceful.
I believe your winged fellow is a turkey vulture.

Andrea said...

That is really cool! It's hard to get a good pic of a flying bird...they're fast! :)

SnoopMurph said...

Yup, it's totally cool.

I forgot to tell you that one of Tom and Ian's favorite games is deciding what animal different clouds look like. It's a great game! I'll have to have Ian look at this post and give his analysis!

Raven said...

hi laura - thanks... and thanks for your visit.

Robert... thank you... I like how he's (don't know why I think of the bird as a he) centered in the break in the clouds. Sometimes luck is with us, I guess.

napaboaniya - thanks. I swear the birds tease me... every night as they start circling, I grab my camera and off they go out of range or sight. I put it down and back they come... and so on.

Pamela - thanks... you are probably right... I think someone esle suggested turkey vulture too.

Andrea - I've gone from hardly any pixels and no zoom to 8.5 pixles and 10x and now I want MORE!!! I was so delighted that I caught this guy... and so nicely centered in the cloud.

snoopmurph - thanks... the cloud game sounds like fun. I look forward to hearing what they come up with. Oh - and I have a lot more cloud photos. I'll send you some if you'd like.

Raven said...

thank you chelle - twice.

Vixen said...

That is a cool catch. You were lucky that day.

Raven said...

thanks vixen, it was pure luck... and a willingness to point the camera at a blank sky and hope something would fly into it.

DeeDee said...

beautiful!!!!

Thanks also for visiting with me. Also thanks for the prayers for my soldier son. He is supposed to come home in May and we can hardly wait. We are so proud of him... but so ready to get him home!
Blessings to you!
