Have your way with each day as its granted to you.

My town.

I decided it was a good day to start working on my raptor project. I put my supplies in my backpack and went outside, it’s been unusually warm lately and it seemed a shame to stay indoors drawing.

I made a few rough sketches of some raptors and took in the view from atop the hill.

A pair of White-tailed Kites were hunting along the hillside, hovering 20 feet off the ground while scanning for prey.

On my walk back down the hill towards home two Kestrels flew right over my head at top speed, chasing each other like fighter jets in the noon day sun. When almost back to my house a Sharp-shinned hawk flew by to my left. It certainly was a good day to start the raptor project.
