I’m not sure if as a couture milliner it’s my love of detail…
Or perhaps simply my fascination with the way light and shadow can bring magic to a subject at any given moment in our natural world.
But last evening while I was out for a walk, something in the distance caught my eye.
A beautiful sight to see, anytime.
But there was something very different about one of the hawk’s feathers, and the way the light was catching it, that made me want to look closer.
And that’s when this image happened.
Smiling at the moment, I walked past the hawk and spotted another hawk feather, this one lying on a lawn nearby.
Had there been a skirmish between the hawk and a crow, that maybe loosened a feather or two?
Or was this simply a feather the hawk had preened, that was ready to fall?
I’ll never know.
What I do know is, this was a special moment.
