Ghost Hawk!

A few days ago I was driving down a country road and a big hawk nose-dived from a tree and crossed in the front of my SUV. The hawk pounced on something on the left side of the road. I slowed and quickly pulled out my camera as the hawk was flying back across the road and snapped the picture. As you can see, I apparently missed the hawk. Dang, I was sure I got the shot. Oh well, it's my Ghost Hawk. 


Anyway, as I was searching the photo for the Hawk I discovered an interesting picture of foliage. Can you see what I see and I did not photo shop. Mother natures camouflage art. It's funny what you can find in the background of photos. Could this be Bambi?

This deer did not turn out to be a ghost deer. We have a salt block near our house and it draws deer and other animals near so I can take a few photos. This morning I took this photo of a Deer near the salt block.  If you look closely you will see two buttons near his ears.

I had planned on taking a few more pictures of this deer, however plans don't always work out when taking photos of wildlife. Enjoy and remember: What's in your woods, lake, river, or bay. Get out!

Looks like a pheasant shape tree formation to me. That what you saw? High nature at work.

Well maybe a chicken, guess the pheasant would have to be strutting to get his tail that high in the air.

Pheasant, good choice. I wonder what it will grow into next? I'm keeping my eye on it.
