"Hawks of the Bottoms"

Here in East Texas we refer to the river bottoms as "The Bottoms" the one most referred to for me is the "Red River Bottoms. The Red River Bottoms separates Arkansas,Texas and Oklahoma. It has an array of wildlife for the wildlife lover and photographers. One of my favorite are the "Bird's of Prey" , the eagles,,kites and the many species of hawks. These birds are all so majestic and graceful.

Waiting on the Rain

  When I got up this morning and went out to get the newspaper I discovered it was raining. First time in a long while. It feels like autumn has arrived. I think the colors are starting to show up in the Arkansas Hills. I seem to have missed them the past few years for one reason or another. Today would be a great day to be photographing them with the cloud cover.
  I am ready for the leaves to fall so I can see and photograph the owls, hawks and eagles. Every season offers something different to photograph. 
Traveled to Northern Arkansas to view the colors of fall..Bright reds,gold,yellow and browns. We did not find much wildlife since we were on the roadways. We did have an escort by a nice size buck down the highway at one location.

Another Hummer Fall Afternoon.

Today was another hummer afternoon here at my cave, they are moving south and feeding like crazy. All I have to do is watch the wildflower plants from my patio.

Hummers and Moving South

Today my wildflower gardens were full of hummers feeding frantically on the wildflowers. Yesterday there were very few, they are 

stopping over to feed and rest on their journey South.

About Dennis

My photo

I am a retired investigator that escaped the society of phonies and seek the simple life. I eat, sleep and dream of nature and nature photography. I love mountain streams, valleys and solitude. Good books by Muir, Thoreau, Abby and Sigurd Olson. I enjoy American Indian flute music, Nakai,John Two-Hawks, and many others. I detest rude people, crowds and know-it-all's. "If your pasture is green you do not have to tell everyone" silence is bliss.. There is no more beautiful music than the silence in  seclusion in the woods, the rushing water over river rocks.
