“I want to fly like an eagle, to the sea.”
“Fly like an eagle, let my spirit carry me” (by Steve Miller band).
“I’m dreaming of a white Christmas.” The only way that will happen is if these guys poop on me as they fly over my head.
“Pretty in pink.”

“Just me … and my shadow.”
I’m thinking this is a red tailed hawk instead of a red shoulder hawk. The red shoulder hawk would have stripes on his tail. Any ideas?
My first real bobcat sighting and I blew it. I was taking pictures of something else, I can’t even remember what it was now, when I saw something move out of the corner of my eye. My camera settings were all wrong so all I got is this blurry shot.
By the time I fixed my settings, this was all I got. My first bobcat butt shot!
It was all over in seconds. He headed down into the ditch and I lost sight of him. I looked for him for at least a half hour softly saying “Here kitty.” but no sign of him again.
Eagles and a bobcat in one day. It was a good morning even though my bobcat pictures turned out blurry. The weather was perfect and not many people out on the trail at Circle B Bar Reserve in early November. I’m going to keep going back this winter and looking for that bobcat again.
Oooh, you should be glad the bobcat didn’t respond to, “Here kitty” because I understand they’re not very cuddly! Hope you do get some more shots of him this winter, but maybe at a bit of a distance.
Meanwhile, I hope you don’t have a white pelican-poo Christmas, but a wonderful picture-worthy holiday!

Hi Dina. 2 great finds in one day. How wonderful. Like Kay sys, don,t let the cat get too close to you. You want to celebrate Christmas.
Absolutly amazing Dina, and yes according to my ID book Red-tailed Hawk.
All the best Gordon.
Can’t beat eagles and bobcat on the same day!
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Fabulous. What an incredible day.
What a great sighting o f the bobcat!
A great day Dina, wow!!
The grasshopper shot is truly amazing. The detail is really stunning.
You should pat yourself on the back for all the fabulous shots you did get…I can never seem to do birds in flight very well…and, hey, a blurry bobcat is better than none at all. I would have had the shakes so badly, I would have dropped the camera.
My SWF is of a beautiful Sacramento sunset.
