Red-tailed Hawk

A couple of Red-tailed Hawks  — one sitting high atop a tree along a quiet country road, and the other soaring overhead in a secluded area near Reelfoot National Wildlife Refuge.

Supermoon going down

These pictures were taken on the morning of January 2, 2018 as the sun was rising and the full moon was setting in the western sky.

“When one starts thinking of the full moon as a common sight that will come again to one’s eyes ad-infinitum, the value of life is diminished and life goes by uncherished.”  ~Roman Payne

Side by side

While driving along the Mississippi levee, we spotted these two eagles sitting contently together in the trees.

“Contentment is a state of the heart, unaffected by outward circumstances.”  ~Crystal Paine
