Dangerous Beauty

We live in a suburban neighborhood just outside of Boston. A neighborhood full of dogs and cats, the occasional parrot, rabbits, raccoons. This morning, we were startled by a flock of crows making a raucous noise. We went in the backyard to find this beauty.

A killing machine was effectively ripping apart breakfast--some small bird it had caught. The crows kept dive bombing the hawk and after a while, the hawk took its meal and flew off.

We've actually had hawks in our neighborhood before, but I've never seen one strip meat from its prey before.

The world around us is full of wonders if we choose to notice.

Choose to notice.

You will be astounded.
