Look who came and sat in the oak tree at the bottom of my garden todaybuzzard I thought it was too small to be a buzzard, and luckily I had my camera by my side, so  I took masses of pictures (garn! I need to get a better zoom lens)Hawk flight

look at those wonderful wing markingshawk landhe/she landed on the edge of the field

hawklftand gave me some great shots to identify it as a buzzard. They look much bigger when soaring in the sky.

I like to look in ‘Medicine Cards’ by Jamie Sams and David Carson, when animals make a strong or unusual appearance:

“Hawk may be teaching you to grab an opportunity which is coming your way…or bringing you the message that you should circle over your life, and examine it from a higher perspective. ….. Hawk has a keen eye and a bold heart”

Always good to look at things from a higher perspective.

And as coincidence would have it, a friend shared this on FB today 158378_nnice synchronicity

    • I sat still with camera poised for about 10 mins, waiting for a movement. The camera was on a multiple shot setting for action photos, to get that shot – you can imagine how many frames I had to delete! The wonder of digital photography. Then I cropped it hugely – a bigger zoom lens is on my wish list. xx

      • Well that frame was worth the wait! I’m wishing for a new camera with better zoom, too. Our camera is a decade old and I don’t think it is capable of multiple shots. Hope it can last until it is replaced! 🙂 ♥ ❤

  3. Fabulous encounter. We found a very fatigued buzzard on the towpath and took it home in the car. Eventually it hopped onto a fence post and flew off . But lovely to see so close. 💜
