City at Night, Revisited

So you may remember the first City at Night on here. I liked that one, but I haz skillz now so I thought I would like to come back to the concept. For reference, here is the first one, done in March of this year;

The second one is called Stars on Earth. I still like the first, but I’m pleased to be progressing.

Hawks Circle the Dry Grasses

Yesterday while I was out walking, I saw this hawk circling. It was beautiful to watch, though the rabbits probably didnt think so. At one point this little bird starts harrassing the hawk by swooping and touching wings before veering away to do it again. The small bird drove the bird of prey away by pestering it. Perhaps that bird had babies it was protecting, or perhaps it was bored. Looking back on it, it seems to be an omen. The hawks will leave if we bother them enough. Just, stay out of reach of those talons.

Here are some pictures of the landscape. No hawk pictures unfortunately! They move so fast.
