Hearing a high pitch kik-kik-kik outside, I look out the window to find Merlin sitting on an owl planter just outside. A member of the falcon family and also known as a “pigeon hawk”, who mainly feeds on small birds, rodents and large insects. He usually gives our feeding birds fits and never sits still long enough for a photograph, so I was quite surprised he allowed me over 20 shots through the window just 7 feet from where he had perched.
I am now content, as all previous shots of this particular species have been a BLUR, to have several shots and poses to savor of my magical friend who symbolizes astral travel, healing and releasing the soul for transition. As is photo.
