Vigilance…

“Vigilance of the wisest kind is to incessantly remain open to the reality that what I ‘see’ is but a single thread and solitary shard of what ‘is’, for to assume otherwise is to surrender the wisdom of vigilance to the decay of ignorance.” Craig Lounsbrough

Perched & Hopeful

“Hope is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without words, and never stops at all.”   Emily Dickinson

Fly Tying Materials: Never Enough?

I have so much fly tying materials! I do run low on certain things, like right now, I need to re-up on certain colors of marabou and rabbit strips. But, otherwise I have enough for years to come.

So, when I was out the other day, I came upon a dead hawk. It had been there for a bit and was damaged. But, I did gather a small amount of feathers for wing material. Not much, just a bit  that will make a great wing.

Here I harvested just a few feathers…just because they were there. I have been admonished/warned/shamed by commenter Craig about harvesting ‘raptor’ feathers. Hmm? What can I say?

Hawk’s Photographs

This hawk was perched near me. I slowly walked forward, camera raised and snapped the picture. I gave no thought to any settings. I anticipated the bird would fly away……

So, the hawk took flight and it all happened quicker than I imagined. I didn’t give consideration to the camera settings for the motion of the hawk…hence the blurring. And, of course, it would have been nice to capture the whole bird.
