 Who would think this little beauty would visit my backyard....I am so used to taking pictures of the cute little hummers and finch.....Look at those legs, so impressive....................Such a beautiful hawk in Orange County....

So stylish with the black and white stripped under feathers and the white underskirt....Love the beige and white front of the dress...


Note the way the skirt flairs out at the bottom, such a styler and the long train makes the perfect statement.....flirty but not to much leg...The longer nails are in now and of course the dark polish so vogue....
I think she is trying to show her underskirt ruffles or she is waving bye bye
Posted by PicasaThanks for visiting today,I just thought I would share these wonderful pictures of this beauty with you...I am still healing from a knee injury so this was an easy post for me with no walking....

  4. Hope your knee is mending well. Great photos of the hawk. I've never seen one this close. xo

  5. Oh my, I believe that is a Perigrine Falcon! How fortunate that you were able to see him. I have only seen then from afar. I loved your description and the photos are amazing! Dianne

  6. When we took our grandson to the Woodland Park Zoo, here in Seattle, we were fascinated by "The Birds of Prey." They are beautiful birds and your photos really do them justice, XOXO

  7. Wonderful photos, Phyllis~ Thank you for sharing these and take care of that knee.

  8. I see hawks while riding along the country roads here all the time, but you really got some great up close photos!!!! They really are pretty graceful!

    I hope you're feeling good now. Take care!!!!!

  9. What a clever post, Phyllis. I've never seen a hawk up close. It is a beauty. Great photography on your part. Hope you are up and around soon with that knee.

  10. Phyllis,
    What a wonderful Hawk, and to see it in your own back yard. I went to the park the other day, and saw a deer! It was a sight. I love how you told the story about the Hawk, as I like fashion so much.

    I hope you are enjoying the summer days.
