Taking A Break

The weather has finally turned gorgeous, so Joe, Mambo and I took a break to enjoy nature's gifts, yesterday afternoon. The over-the-mountain view from the patio shall soon disappear, as bursting foliage fills in the gaps and creates our cocoon. But for now, little birds are busy and large raptors lurk.
While engulfed in the shadow of wings, we spotted our resident hawk swooping... changing his mind... and landing in a tree. I guess he was taking a break, too. Joe thinks we might have saved a chickadee.
