Life and death in quiet, lovely Tower Grove Park. I was shooting trees and snow in late afternoon light last weekend when a passer-by pointed out this hawk and its victim. The bird guarded its prey but let me get close - I was at most 4 meters away when I took these shots. On rare occasions, I've also seen hawks in Forest Park, our big one.
WHAT'S GRATIFYING: the number of hits and comments I got on my theme day post Sunday. I thought it might be too obscure. My blog is not a mega comment collector. Now, what am I going to do with glass for March?
TOMORROW: one for Snapper.
