This Red-tailed Hawk flew right over the hood of my pickup truck. If it were a little lower and a little slower we would have collided. It crossed U.S. 2 and landed on a billboard. I stopped backed up and managed to get these shots.

It was a fairly gloomy day today. Although it wasn't an ideal day to take pictures it sure was great to get out and about. To many hours sitting in front of a computer this week.
Is it Friday yet? I feel a full out photo trip coming on.
A couple of days with two cameras, three lens, four CF cards and plenty of batteries.
Hopefully, a little sun and a couple of dozen good photos to show for the day(s)and maybe just maybe one "great" photo for the portfolio.
Remember great is in the eye of the beholder.

I dug into the photo archives to find a photo of this airplane. Planes and flight are one of the many hobbies of the Minnesota Geek. Visit his website.
If you're an Apple Mac user do yourself a favor and visit his site for the great Tech Tips.

Bald Eagle circling the bay. Looking southwest. Bodin's on the Lake in the background.
Circling back toward the east. Notice the ducks in the lower right corner.
Talons out and striking the water. Missing it's target.
Recovering from the "near' miss.
Flying off to recircle and try several more times. Finally giving up and flying off.
No guns, duck blinds, decoys, dogs and camo here.
I watched this Bald eagle circle the bay narrowing his circle until it focused in on a small flock of ducks.
It made several passes and then finally dove on the flock.
I watched this from about 1/4 mile away.
The photos aren't the best but I thought it was an unusual event worth posting.
Several times I started to move to get closer but worried about missing the show even though it was at a distance.

The bike trail headed west. This trail follows the old railroad grade. It stretches from Ashland to Superior Wisconsin. Someday I hope to ride the entire trail with a little overnite camping along the way.
I missed most of the summer bike riding time. But views like this along the way help make up for it.

This little guy must have read the textbook regarding it's habitat and behavior. See this DNR site. This is one of several I saw today on my bike ride.
