More sightings; hawk, deer

On my way home from visiting my client, I spotted our sharp-shinned hawk, or red-tailed, I'm not sure!. It has a way of glaring, doesn't it?! In the first photo, there is a bird on a fly-by, just in the center beyond the hawk. The crows were not happy with it in the area. You can figure out what it did in the last photo, not captured on the photo, thankfully.

I saw a doe in our back 100m. She was clearly agitated, and worried about a predator. You can see her ears back, listening. Hubby spotted something in the back on the edge of the forest.
There have been a lot of bear sightings nearby. He doesn't think he saw a bear, though. We'll keep you posted. The deerflies have been miserable, and we haven't seen many deer about, perhaps we have a new predator?

Then, there are the deerflies. The ticks are way down this summer. This is why deer are scarce.

Deer flies are a horrid pest.

Hello!:) Lovely images of the hawk, and deer. Those pesky flies must be a great nuisance. We had a lot of tics this year. Thanks for your return visit to my blog. Your comment about the bears made me laugh!!:=)
