Standoff

hawk

"You wanna piece of me?" challenged the Hawk.
The pair of Blue Jays, chasing him away from their nest, took notice.

Wonderful picture.

One hawk versus two blue jays? Hmmmm. The odds don't look good for the blue jays.

How did they fare?

What a shot - what an expression. You really caught the moment. Sometimes I think all we need in life is a camera and we'd be totally happy.

Nice looking photograph. Looks like it must have been windy too.

I am not surprised at the Blue Jays chasing off the hawk. Blue Jays can terrify almost any bird and hawks and owls are among those.

Great photo, Isabella! What a wonderful blue sky, without any clouds!

I love photographing birds. This is a brilliant capture, and what a blue, blue sky.

Once more a perfect sentence by you going with the expression of the hawk! You are really good at that! :-)

Hi Isabella! Great shot; and the sunset is superb...
Sorry for this short visit, but I just wanted to say thanks for your comments on my blog. This weekend, I’m going to take a musical break, and next week I’ll make a very short trip, crossing South Atlantic. I’ll try to catch up with your posts as soon as possible. Meanwhile, leave you with some chocolate champagne truffles at Blogtrotter.
Have a lovely weekend and an excellent week!
Gil
