Love is in the Air

I know Mary is tired of hearing about this, but I just couldn't resist.

Yesterday morning I saw these hawks in the tree in the middle of the street. The early morning sun was just beginning to hit the top of the tree and making them glow so I ran and got my camera. They seemed to be basking in the warmth of the sun, just watching the day come alive.

Since this tree is only 200 yards from the school, I think they are the same birds I saw there.

Whilst snapping away, one of them swooped down onto the other one with amorous intentions. It all happened so fast I just got one blurry photo, and now I feel like a sleazy paparazzi. Shame on me.

Now, should I show you what the squirrels were doing? Naw, that would probably push Mary right over the edge. But it does seem that love is in the air here Amongst The Oaks.

I love these pictures. The department I work with moved to a new building about a year ago, but prior to our move we had been in the same building fourteen years. The building was ten stories, and afforded us beautiful views.

We had a hawk that kept a nest in a tree within our view. The hawk would soar past our office windows, and we watched it sweep through the skies. We were all sad to leave "our" hawk.

Your pictures brought back fond memories for me. Thank you.

HA! As long as the hawk doesn't hold a confessional press conference with his wife by his side, I'm OK with it.

Great photos! Have a wonderful Easter!
