We recently had a special day at our house.
DH and I celebrated our anniversary.
I've mentioned before that he likes ducks.
He likes decoys too.
So I was excited to find this Decoy stamp by Impression Obsession.
It was so easy to stamp it with the MISTI.
I stamped and blended the colors with an Aqua Painter.
Easy, peasy and a big hit with the hubs!
To celebrate, we went to the movies and saw Wonder Woman.
An awesome movie!
As for the hawks.....
We've had some visitors the past couple of days.
Our first sighting was from the back door. He was about 6 feet away on our deck.
Couldn't get to the camera without scaring him.
He followed a squirrel around the deck and at one point, lifted his wings trying to look ferocious.
The squirrel slowly moved out of range and off the deck.
Our feathered friend followed him to they yard
and was joined by another.
At that point, I got my camera.
We watched them playing in the gumballs and throwing them in the air.
They played together for quite a while. Very like kids.
Then we heard another in a tree.
After a bit the two flew to our vehicles parked in the sunshine.
This last picture is of him just before he hunkered down on top of my car for a nap.
They were back yesterday.
DH was in the yard this morning and came around our deck and up the steps and one was perched on the railing. He said he was 18 inches away from him.
That's too close.
I think we need to stop feeding the birds for a few days so they don't become the meal!
They don't seem to be too interested in the squirrels and they scamper about
when the hawks are in the yard.
This is so amazing because we live in the middle of the city.
We have lots of trees around so we do see wildlife but not usually this close.
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
