Wing Prints in the Snow

These wing prints are clues left behind in the snow, giving evidence of an untold story. Probably a hawk, after having landed in the snow, gave chase to an escaping prey.

Note: This item is from the archives. It was originally posted in February, 2007. I (Me Ann My Camera's Daughter) will be "Guest blogging" while Ann is in the hospital. She is doing well but does not have computer access (much to her chagrin). I will be reposting some "classics" and maybe occasionally daring to contribute a few photos of my own.

What a fascinating and very beautiful pair of photographs. Thank you for sharing them. I was sorry to hear your Mom is in hospital. Please tell her that Denise in Northern Virginia wishes her a speedy recovery and out of the hospital as soon as she is able. I will miss her and I know how she feels being without her computer. Thank you for filling in while she is away.
