The natural world around me, both a few steps and a few miles, away.

Out of My Rear Window 2/20/11
Shades of brown, grey and white, with the only color coming from the old pine tree in back. No sun, no wind, just clouds and squirrels, lots of squirrels.
Squirrels who, all of a sudden, disappeared, in one mad scramble. At first, I couldn't figure out what made them run. But, then, I saw these guys land in the locust tree that overhangs the feeder area.
As far as I know, crows don't prey on squirrels, but, with a silhouette that size, I'm betting that the squirrels were thinking "HAWK!!!" and didn't hang around to see if they were right or wrong.
Actually, I had been wondering where the crows had gone. I guess, no where far away.
