Thanks to CosmicGirlie for hosting Silent Sunday.

Thanks also to Sue for the Word a Week Challenge: Lines. (The title of this post – My what blue eyes you have – seems like one of the oldest lines in the book.)

A thank-you to Michelle for the Weekly Pet Challenge Roundup nudge.

Thanks once again to Stewart Moncton for the Wild Bird Wednesday prompt.

Thanks to the kind folks at NaBloPoMo for the National Blog Posting Month challenge this November.


A selection of my heron and flower photos is now available at the Five Crows Gallery in Natick, MA. Drop in and see the work of the many wonderfully creative artists who show there when you’re in the area.

Remember: Walk softly and carry a long lens.™

  1. Wow, that is a stunning shot, Babsje!!!

  2. What a beautiful photo and bird 🙂

  3. Bird-hawk/young eagle? Beautiful shot and what energy you captured!:-)

    • Thanks for your kind words, Robbie, glad you like the peregrine falcon.

      • aww..a falcon! I had one of those in my backyard this spring. The city used them to help with pigeons. They are quite beautiful. I thought it was a hawk at first:-)

        • Wow, in your backyard? That’s awesome, and interesting that the city used falcons for bird control. They’re pretty rare here still.

          • I know, but what was interesting was that my bird feeders were empty, chipmunks were scarce and all the chatter that usually goes on gone for a few weeks, I was wondering than I saw HIM!-lol…but not really funny for them…well, he moved on and have not seen him in awhile, but he was a beauty!

            • It must have been an awesome sight, a peregrine in your yard! That sounds like an ominous indication that a predator is around, when the usual neighborhood birds go silent and scarce. A pair of red tailed hawks that roosted in my neighbor’s yard had that same effect on my birdfeeders, too.

          • they had some baby falcons on a web cam in one of our city roofs…it was interesting…:-) that was a few years ago

  4. That’s what all the girls tell me. 🙂 Great photo of the Peregrine Falcon, Babs.
