Day 187—Needle in a Haystack

I had another hawk rescue call today. Someone reported an injured hawk on the side of Highway 65 near Twelve Bridges. I drove over but I saw no movement or anything that looked like a hawk on the side of the road or in the median except a few shards of tire rubber. I went around a couple of times and finally pulled over at Twelve Bridges. It was like looking for a needle in a haystack and I was unsuccessful in finding the injured hawk. Acres of dry grass and weeds and who knows what else lurking there stretched in front of me. Since I couldn’t find the hawk, I took a few shots trying to remember the hyperfocal distance lesson from class. This scene isn’t much to look at but it is what that entire area looks like, and I seem to have managed to get everything in focus without using a tripod.
