I spend a lot of time in the woods near my home. Mostly I walk, sit, think, and watch for wildlife. This particular day I made my way to an area I like to sit, it’s quiet, surrounded by trees, a great place to relax and meditate on life. I felt something was out there but couldn’t see any movement, and yet I still felt as if something was watching me. I placed the camera on its highest zoom setting and concentrated on the area I thought there may be some wildlife hiding, and luckily, I found this guy peering out from behind the branches looking towards my direction.
I took the shot and then two, flew from the area and into the tree where I took the second shot. Beautiful creatures to see in the wild. Sometimes trusting ones gut pays off. Have a great day!
