Speechless Sunday: The Appalachian Trail...

The Appalachian Trail, you said...

I don't know that I've ever been moved to post for Speechless Sunday.  Sometimes, though, there truly is nothing to say... 

See the rest of the photos of these birds on my post:

I read a really great book about  The Appalachian Trial  called A walk in the woods by Bill Bryson. It was fantastic.

GOOD MORNING MIKE!  I'm glad you posted a speechless Sunday - many of your photos don't even need a caption because they are so beautiful.  This one is cute - one baby looks like it is full of energy - the other like it's had enough already! -- Gab

Lee & Pamela,

Turns out they're Red Tails, although they're not like any I'm used to from South Carolina or Georgia!

Hey there, Charles,

It's good to see you; thanks for stopping by to comment!

Gabrielle,

Thanks for the encouragement, young lady!

Don,

Neither did the Senator from my home state of SC.  LOL

Susie,

OH...  That's what you meant...  :)

Michael,

I had a great time photographing this pair.

Hi Mike,

  I think you got a winner on this one.

I have always thought hawks and eagles were very cool. Our Red Tailed Hawks here are quite abundant but I don't ever remember getting this close to any of them.

Posted by Terry & Bonnie Westbrook, Westbrook Realty - Grand Rapids Forest Hills MI Re (Westbrook Realty Broker-Owner) about 11 years ago

Terry,

I have a 10X optical zoom on my Panasonic Lumix.  Still, I was able to approach closer than I have with any other bird of prey (with one exception--a hawk that had caught and was eating a dove in my backyard allowed me to approach slowly to within 20 feet.)

Connie Lou,

Thanks!  I'll see you on your blog.

Gee Mike - I saw the "Babes on Santa Rita Golf Course" title & thought the demographics had changed!  Still like the photo though ;)

Posted by Kent Simpson, Real Estate Is About People (Realty One Group Mountain Desert) about 11 years ago

Mike, they look huge, I would never have guessed that was a picture of babies, what a great shot.

Posted by Joanne O'Donnell (Chic Home Interiors) about 11 years ago

Joanne,

They're this spring's fledglings.  They can fly, but they spend a lot of time napping, like the one on the right.

Kent,

Babies...  LOL

Between this story (a whole new meaning to hiking on the Appalachian Trail) and Michael Jackson (and I even was a fan, of sorts -- at least I liked the Thriller album when it came out), one would think there is nothing else going on in the world. Buried 35 minutes into tonight's CNN 360 "news" was a story that there is a major offensive going on in Afganistan.... oh well, I don't mean to hijack your blog, but the quotation set me off.

Howdy there Mike

I don't believe them two ever made it to The Appalachian Trail. At less not the parts that I've been on. lol

Dale,

I believe you're right!  LOL

Ann,

Hijack away!  :)

I'm in agreement with your comment!
