Sunday, August 29, 2021 —(On September 20, the full moon, “Harvest”, will rise nearest to earth.)
This morning’s sunrise wasn’t the only beautiful sky sight. In the final moments of yesterday’s daylight, I scrambled for a camera to catch the sun just setting behind the Middle and North Sisters Mountains.
The camera had been laying nearby, because earlier the sky had delivered an exciting sight happening my way. Here’s a Red-Tailed Hawk staring at something that soon would become its capture.
Birds have incredible eyesight. This one, parked high and several hundred yards distant, saw me and my pointed camera. Several minutes afterwards, it lifted, and then while lowering flew in the direction it had been watching.
Below-sky, too, is great. Here’s my barn’s wild resident.
And the horses, each of which having lost a shoe must await the farrier, and completely is bored.
Dear Friends: A handy camera memorializes in-the-moment visions, and feelings. Diana
