the pecan wars
The squirrels were on alert with tails waving and squaking loudly when the grill king and I returned from having steaks (yea - meat grilled by others!) at the local Roadhouse.
This large raptor posed for a few closeups and then decided to look for his dinner elsewhere. He sailed towards the east keeping the fading sunlight behind him.
The squirrels settled down quickly. But not one of them promised to leave the pecans alone in return for saving their fluffy little tails.
We just saw Charlie Wilson's War and I'm thinking about keeping a list of favors owed.
I think he's an osprey...he's a beauty. Do you have a lake nearby? he's a hunting along the edges of water raptor.
