Basking in the late afternoon sun, I savor each remaining moment.  Overhead a hawk circles ever higher as if winding himself up.  Suddenly he spies an unfortunate little field mouse who, unknowingly, was about to be invited to lunch, and not as a guest.  The hawk, now in perfect position, dives.  Nature's original fast food.

(My first) Friday Flash 55.


  1. Poor little mouse. Love the pic too.

  2. Poor mouse! But I do love hawks just the same :)

    Great 55, Linda!
