Nice one Larry. I am suprised the bauble didn’t fall off or get covered in snow when that big hawk landed in the tree?

Great Shot, Larry … however, the expresion on the RL hawk doesn’t look like he has the Christmas spirit 🙂 Happy Holidays …

The Hawk and the snowy tree are beautiful – and the little red bubble adds the holiday touch!

Lovely shot, Larry! Merry Christmas to you and your family and a happy new birding year!

Merry Christmas Larry. What a delightful image shared…gorgeous bird and creative showing;’)~

@Phil, it’s amazing that that bulb stayed on that tree out in the wild with all that weather and not a speck of snow on it either. Hmmm 😉
@Pam thank you very much. He is a rather handsome fellow
@Theresa thank you!
@Mick thanks! My first attempt at modifying one of my bird photos for a Christmas Card
@Hilke thank you and to all a happy new birding year indeed!!

I love Roughies and this one certainly looks festive!

Happy Holidays Larry.

Splendid shot – and even a little touch of Photoshop for good measure.

Thanks for the comment about WBW – its a pleasure to get the links from all over the world. I want it to keep growing – but I’m not sure that I could visit more than about the 50 links it tends to get each week.

Looking forward to more posts in 2013

I wish I had thought of that….I would say for a first attempt…this looks like an art piece ….wow…I like it! Oh love the hawk, we rarely see those here. Happy New Years!

A great shot high up in the broken tree.
Do you go around with a tall ladder before Christmas and hang baubles in all the trees in your vicinity? Or do you sit back in your easy chair and add one at will. Beautifully done, whichever.

A Happy and Prosperous New Year to you and all those dear to you!

Awesome shot of the Hawk, Larry! I hope you Christmas was wonderful and I wish you a very Happy New Year!


Pat December 26, 2012 at 2:52 pm

Beautiful! Hope your Christmas was very merry!
