I spent a good hour on my front porch early Tuesday morning watching the world go by and during that hour I saw some pretty interesting animal hijinks. The morning started off very cold, dreary and rainy with a turkey hawk circling my house, a squirrel eating berries and a cardinal standing watch. The rain and clouds eventually disappeared and the day turned into a beautiful sunny day. One weird thing was that once the rain went away, so did the animals.
Here are some of the pictures I took Tuesday morning.
Squirrel enjoying berries on my front lawn. Debris in the background caused by Hurricane Sandy still litters the area seven weeks later.
Turkey hawk landing on my neighbor’s roof. I couldn’t quite get the focus right because of too many branches.
Turkey Hawk circling over the squirrel on my front lawn.
Cardinal standing watch making sure the turkey hawk doesn’t swoop in on him.
Rain drops clinging to the tips of the branches on my weeping cherry tree.
Squirrel standing watch as the clouds moved on to reveal a beautiful blue sky.
