Thanksgiving Dinner


There are two animals in this picture. Can you find them? The first is relatively obvious. The second may take some searching.Image

There are two creatures in this tree. Can you find them both?

I took this photo on Thanksgiving Day. I noticed the hawk in the tree as we were getting our own dinner ready. I took several shots of it before I noticed its prey plastered to the branch beneath it, the stillest thing in the tree. We usually think of birds as dinner on Thanksgiving, but this guy had other ideas.

After a while, my husband got tired of waiting for me, and I got tired of waiting for the hawk to see the squirrel. About the same time, the hawk got tired of waiting for the squirrel and flew off. The squirrel never got tired of being absolutely still, and I’m sure was truly thankful to survive for another day.
