As I have said many times, I never know who I am going to meet and encounter on my walk-abouts. That is part of makes it so much fun. Today, I was very pleasantly surprised to meet “someone” completely new, and in a location I wasn’t at all prepared for either. I saw a beautiful Merlin, down by the water’s edge. This is my first one. I just love the birds of prey. I think they are just so majestic and beautiful. This one was on the hunt for whatever he could find that tickled his fancy. I was very lucky he gave me a bit of his precious time for a brief photo shoot.
Mr. Merlin even allowed me to get some shots of him in the trees as well.
Stay curious and look at the world through a child’s eye. There is so much to see and it’s all just waiting to be discovered.
