True Confessions

Not only did I buy one pair of new shoes, I bought two.

I don't buy shoes very often, as I'm very difficult to fit.  When I DO go into a shoe store, I buy whatever fits.  So far, so good.  :)

Yesterday was exciting both indoors and out.

Indoors, I made these two postcards.

Outdoors, this guy swooped through my backyard (which really, isn't all that big), grabbed a bird (maybe a dove?  Not quite as big as a robin), and landed on the neighbor's roof.  By the time I ran inside, got my camera, and got back outside, the prey was gone.

I think I finally have my answer to the bird parts that have been found in the yard for the past couple of months.  I thought it was Edgar, but Edgar spent the bulk of winter sleeping on my bed.  I didn't know when he found the time to hunt.  Apparently he's no longer the primary hunter back there.

Pixel, beware.

Yowza! That's one mean birdie!

Like your shoes. Where did you find them?

I'm not a bird person - what kind of bird is that? A hawk?

Love the new shoes - are they Clarks?

I have those shoes and I love them.

We have red-tailed hawks that live in a tree nearby. They visit and pick off some of our gold finches now and again. I know it's nature, but I hate witnessing it in action.
