We spent the last week in Western Kentucky at a beautiful lake home with no internet access. It was heaven! I’m putting together a post about all the beautiful birds, butterflies, and flowers we saw. In the meantime, I wanted to share a picture that I’m so excited about. It falls into the category of “not great photography–boy, I really should spend more money on new equipment,” but I’m so glad I was able to catch the moment at all. We were boating on the river and had stopped to explore an area on the bank. I noticed a hawk fly by with a huge snake dangling from its talons. It landed in a tree on the other side of the river and I tried my hardest to hold my long lens steady to get a focused shot that far away.
That’s a Red-tailed Hawk with a freshly caught Copperhead snake! It made my day.
Now back to editing tons of photos from the last week–hope to have a post up in the next day or two.
