Two-fer Tuesday

I was driving along a back street on a recent Saturday morning when I happened to glance at a nearby light pole and spotted these two hanging out. Quickly pulling into the parking lot, I slowly walked very close to the pole to take some shots with my ever-present phone. The bird on the left was calling insistently and there was a third bird on the next post over, but facing the other way and not interacting with these two at all. What a great way to start the day!

I tried to look them up online but had no luck finding any hawks that matched how these two looked. (I have the same problem with flowers all too often.) So if any of you can identify them, you’ll make my Tuesday even better.

Patti, you’ve set us quite a challenge here, which I’m hoping to meet with one photo and a poem (the latter’s formatting depending on my ability to deal with WP’s new editor.)

 This Colmar building is old,
the shutters certainly blue,
the cars (well, you guess),
all borrowed for you!

(Big caveat! For some reason, this posted on Wednesday, rather than Thursday, so I’m now thinking irritating thoughts. I’ll link it to Norm’s post tomorrow and try to be more careful when scheduling. Sigh.)

After having coffee/tea, my daughter headed to work and I ambled down Pine Street toward 2nd, where she said there were interesting shops. I figured on browsing a bit before we met for lunch. Unfortunately for me, the Philadelphia doors distracted me as they often do and after exploring a lovely old cemetery dating back to colonial days, I hadn’t even made it to 2nd when I had a text asking to meet for lunch in half an hour. I hoofed it the rest of the way, glanced at a few shops, then headed quite quickly back, trying not to allow any doors to slow me down. I was mostly successful. And I never did get to see the shops.

Here were three of my favorite doors, favorites at least until I look through the other photos. And before you leave, take a quick trip to the site of one of my favorite poets on the web, Whimsymimsy, who wrote a poem today using my first door photo. Thanks, WM, I love it.
