Freebie Kit - Shamrocks

We had an absolutely beautiful day today with temps in the upper sixties.  It was positively balmy - a taste of spring which is just around the corner.  The only spoiler was a tornado watch this evening.  But, thank goodness, all remained calm.

I just finished a new kit which I called Shamrocks in honor of St. Patrick's Day, but the colors are perfect for spring layouts too.
Hope you like it and, as always, if you download, please leave a comment.  I do appreciate them.

Coopers Hawk

When looking out the kitchen window this afternoon, I spotted this fella.  He looked like a big blob until DH got the binoculars.  DH thought it was an owl but I thought it looked more like a hawk of some kind.  I ran for the camera which just had the normal lens and took several shots while DH got the zoom lens.  By the time we changed the lens I only got one shot before he flew off.  No time for the tripod so it isn't as clear as I would have liked and the morning coffee didn't help either.  lol  After he flew off we got the bird book out and discovered he was a Cooper's Hawk.
