Project 52, Week 50 ~ Balancing Act


I watched this hawk while I was trying to put up my outdoor Christmas lights.
He didn't move for the longest time. 
Finally I couldn't stand it anymore and went inside to get my camera. 


Hey lady- want a picture?  Guess what?  I'm gonna turn around now.
Stand back and admire my skills. 


Yes, I know I;m gorgeous. 
Now go finish your lights. 
I'm trying to hunt here.

  46. Fabulous! How wonderful that he seemed to be posing for you! :-) I used the new camera for the first time yesterday, but though it is easy to use for the most part, I do need to read more in depth to learn some of the trickier basics. There will be much experimenting in the coming months, I am sure! :-)
