The case of the disappearing photos.
It used to happen from time to time - now it's happening a lot more often. After posting my photos in here which I have hosted for years on Fotki dot com, the urls change causing my blog to have many blank placeholders.
This is not meant to be a rant - just letting people know why there are so many missing photos.
Unfortunately, I can't take the time to keep fixing the links.
Enjoy what's left. Thank you.

Skittish

The area where I sometimes see lots of hawks and other birds of prey was active today, but the hawks seemed very skittish. I would pull over a distance away from where they were perched in a tree near the road, but before I even reached for my camera they would "move on". This one was taken from further away than I had been trying and through my truck window, so it's not the best but at least he/she let me get a photo.

getting a good close-up is hard sometimes especially when the animals are stand offish.
many times,I run into the same thing you did with this shot; it's their instinct. they know we're reaching something like i know the hawk in this pic has his eye on you.

good pic!

I'm sure he was watching me. After I drove off another car stopped too close to where he was and when I went by again the bird was gone.
