My daughters and I watched a hawk eating a squirrel on a branch overhanging the neighbor's yard. At least, it looked to me like a squirrel through my blurry binoculars. Mostly we could just see red and yellowish chunks being pulled off.

This branch is a favorite spot for the hawks. We see them there all the time, and have for years. I don't know if it is the same pair that is nesting in our neighborhood year after year.

Acrylic painting: Charleston dock at sunset

Acrylic paint on canvas, 8 x 8 inches. This one was a commission. I am very happy with how it looks, though I never did get a photo that captured the subtlety of color in the real life painting. I guess that's just always the way it is.
