Open Skies.

Views of the open sky above me today as I spent many hours roaming around Thursley Common, one of the finest remaining heathlands in Southern England.
......and high above me a Hobby was feeding on the wing drifting from blue into white.

  1. So Frank, you must explain to me what a heathland is, for I have heard of the word for many ages past, but not certain what it means from your vantage point. I must say, whatever it means, it cetainly is quite lovely. enjoy~

  2. Very nice. Montana is known as "Big Sky Country". Good shots!

  3. Hopefully Thursley Common will continue to be a beautiful heartland till the end of time. We need to save these habitats for the wildlife to live in... we all need a home.
    Great shots, Frank.

    Mona. I don't think we can compete with 'big' Montana.

  5. There is something so nice about clouds - I love them when they are big like that! Don't know what a Hobby is but very cool catch ;-)

  6. Bird Girl. Hobby is a falcon (Falco subbuteo) that catches insects on the wing.

  7. Reminds me of the local variation... Red Tail hawks. Lovely shots.

  8. Kramer. The Hobby is a very small falcon, (similar in size to American Kestrel) so much smallet than RTH.
