Sky Watch Friday

Welcome to Sky Watch Friday, which begins on Thursday in my time zone. I took the photo above at Hawk Ridge in Duluth, MN this past weekend. The young boy pictured has just released a red-tailed hawk.

That is a really nice picture of the hawk. Nice color of sky too.

See you can do the Sky Watch thing and still get your birds in the picture. An experience this boy will tell about the rest of his life. Hope he gets a copy of him releasing the hawk.

Something he'll never forget - maybe he'll grow up to be one of "us."

Love the teeth firmly clamped on lower lip in concentration. Good catch.
