Skywatch Friday!

Both photos were taken on the same day at the same beach. The first was taken at 1:20 PM and the second at 3:20 PM. Both photos click to enlarge for the best view.

My New Poem: Autumn in the Oak Woods


  1. Kathie, I'm drawn to the gold on the bird breast reflecting the golden grasses below

    lovely imagery

  2. Beautiful birds!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  3. Wow these photos are gorgeous! Thanks for sharing! I am following you.


  4. Sure is a contrast in skies but more great bird shots.

  5. great photos, amazing how the sky can change its mood and color in a few short hours

  6. I second what Kel said. I was immediately captivated by how the beautiful hawk's colors so perfectly match those of the beach below. And with that blue sky and water as a backdrop - wow! What a brilliant photograph!

  7. Very, very nice post today, Kathie! You've captured both 'moods' perfectly and I love how you imagined them into a SkyWatch post! Well done, karen

  8. Hi Kathie

    That first photo is spectacular. It is such a gorgeous shot with the beautiful colours of the bird against the blue of the ocean and the sky.



Welcome to my nest! I hope you will enjoy spending time here with me and the birds. Thank you for your comments. I will try to get back to you as soon as I get back from counting more birds.
