I spent one more night (last night) away from home with Chuck and Sylvia of Secondary Roads, and that was a really calm place to decompress from my busy trip for a few hours.
Just after I left their house I saw a hawk sitting in a tree that somehow didn't look like my familiar red-tail. I stopped and it took off. Then I knew it was something different! The tail was mostly white, or at least certainly not red.
I managed to catch it in two really terrible pictures. Looking in my bird book, I think it's a rough-legged hawk. So...here you are, for what it's worth... one shot from below and one from above.
I saw one of these hawks here, a couple of years ago, and got some bad pictures that time too. But, maybe, if I catch one a few more times I'll learn it.
I promise lots of Flower Show pictures soon. I have to get them organized a little. Work tonight... then maybe tomorrow.
