Christmas Eve 2017

I got a pleasant surprise when I went to feed on Christmas Eve. It was dusk. The sun had set but there
was still some light. As I walk toward the barn I see a large bird fly into a tree South of the barn. I went back to the truck for my camera. I knew it would be difficult to get a good picture with my big lens and low lighting but I had to try!

I took a picture but I wanted to get closer.

I'm still not close enough for my liking and try to get closer still.

When I did, as I figured he would, he took flight.

I then turn my attention to the Western horizon were the sky was full of color.

A beautiful night before Christmas.

Have a good one!
