We had been hiking through Sawhill Ponds for about three-fourths of an hour late on Friday afternoon.  The only wildlife worth capturing with my camera was this Red-tailed Hawk.

“Not much here today,” Sharon said.

Just then I spotted a coyote off to our right.

Ten minutes later Sharon spotted this Great Horned Owl off to our left.

The owl flew to a sunnier perch. And we followed.

Later, Sharon suggested that we hike over to the adjacent Walden Ponds on the off chance we could find a beaver. Just after the sun went down, this beaver came out of its lodge.

A few minutes later the sky lit up.

You can’t always get what you want. But if you try, you sometimes get what you need.
