This fall and winter, the weather has been extremely messy in my area. Constant rain, high winds, and flooding along with a plethora of bugs have not been making it easy for me to get outdoors. I am longing for the days when I can grab my binoculars and sketching kit and head outside to explore and sketch for hours.
Though we’ve been forced to spend a lot of time indoors, I journeyed to the post office in the rain yesterday and was rewarded with a close-up peek at a Red-tailed Hawk. His beautiful buteo body was silhouetted on a gable, and when he grew bored with watching me (or me watching him), he soared down and back up. Right. over. my. head.
