Quite the wildlife weekend. Here is an otter in our pond this morning. It was swimming around hissing at us.

Yesterday (Saturday) afternoon I spotted a small hawk out the living room window.

Did it see me too?

Beautiful little Sharp-shinned Hawk.

Perched in the gingko tree in the front yard. I didn’t even see the woodpecker when I took this picture!

The hawk started to move around the tree, hop-flying from branch to branch.

Hunter and hunted.

The woodpecker flew off with the hawk in hot pursuit. I don’t know how it ended – they disappeared into the woods.
