Capturing this image was a special moment. We had taken the kids to a local park to fly their kites on Memorial Day. While the kites drifted lazily in the blue sky, I started photographing images of my surroundings. Then I heard my kids yelling excitedly, “Look! Look!”
Two hawks were circling low around the kites, investigating these colorful intruders. When they seemed certain that our kites were neither prey nor threat, they disappeared as quickly as they had come.
Too often I’m distracted by what lies around me. Many of these activities are important. But once again I’m reminded that I need to look up and be astonished by splendor that resides beyond my limited vision.
