Purple Martins abandon their southern nests, Journey to another clime. Dark clouds gather, Release no rain. A hawk's wings overshadow her prey; closer now.
A few photographs from walking on the trail next to the Colorado River (in Austin, Texas, also known as Lady Bird Lake). And yes, it was a cold and rainy day (just a little bit rainy, but definitely grey).
I tried to sneak up on the hawk sitting on the perch to get a closeup photo. That didn’t happen.
