Temelec resident, Henry Ratz, has generously shared many lovely photographs he has taken around Temelec. Several are of the birds that visit our community. About the hawk, Henry writes:
The hawk picture deserves a special note: It is not every day one has a chance to meet one of these super-fast bird hunters at close range. I heard a commotion at the front door, jumped up and spotted this guy shaking himself. He apparently had just missed his breakfast – the quails feeding under the bushes near-by – and in the process misjudged the concrete by a wing span and slammed hard into it. It took him three minutes to recover and catch his breath, time enough for me to grab the camera and record this raptor in all its beauty
Here are two other examples. You will find many more now added to the Gallery section of the website that you can view as a slideshow by clicking here.
