Just Hangin' Around - Sky Watch Friday

This amazing hawk was hovering, in one spot, over Bluff Cove for at least 10 minutes. I had a chance to park my car along PV Drive, scramble down a short path, snap away, and still watch it, awestruck. The RC controlled planes, being flown there, must have kept its attention.
See lots of great skies at Tom's Sky Watch Friday.

Wow!
I can picture you scrambling about! LOL! Have been in the same situation myself, but I usually miss!

That is one of the most amazing shots I have ever seen of a bird in flight. One of my dream pictures.

Great sky too! ;0)

I'll be away this weekend but have a photo scheduled for each day. Thank you all in advance for your comments.
Palm Axis - I was looking forward to seeing the Roman troup on Saturday; I'll have to catch it next time. Thanks for letting me know about it.

I think the hawk looks down on the earth..., if he is sky watching, he has a bad constitution ;)

have a nice weekend

I know Tom will love this picture

Unfortunately Tom is on bed rest today and for the first time you are stuck with me. I have my orders to visit as many as I can, and make sure the links are working and everyone is being good. I am sure you are all being good.
Tom and I thank you for Sky-Watching this week. I am sure that as soon as Tom's heart beat settles down he will be back here and visiting.

Hallo from north Norway. Last week I saw all Sky Watch Friday photos and they were all great, and I hope to see them all this week too. I love to travel around the world this way.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful sky watch and have a great weekend!
