Gift from on high


There it was this morning sitting on the naked branch of the dogwood tree outside my kitchen window. Stella spotted it first. It sat there, quiet, staring at my window for what seemed like the longest time. Long enough to get the camera, long enough to stalk it slowly, flashing away, long enough to look it up in my Audubon book — “sharp-shinned hawk — a fast, small hawk with a slender body rounded wings and a long sqared-off tail. habitat: woods”…and my backyard. I turned my back and it was gone.
