It was a beautiful day yesterday - 60 plus degrees; nice sunny afternoon. husband & I were taking a break on the patio; husband is working from home & I was out back sketching - there was a lot of activity going on as the birds & squirrels get ready for the soon coming cold weather. Right in the middle of this idyllic scene there was a huge rustling in the neighbors yard & a very harsh call. husband & I looked up to see a red tailed hawk dive into our yard & whisk away one of the squirrels feeding at the squirrel feeder. It was the kind of scene that I had to take time to process; the kind of scene that takes one's breath away. Very sudden & surprising. It promises to be another beautiful day today - I may have to think twice sitting out on the patio.
