I didn't crop this because I wanted to see if the EXIF information would show that I used the 12X optical zoom (420mm lens) to shoot the photo.
It doesn't ! Look at the largest size if you want to see the hawk, etc.

Kaska... are you just saying that or is it true? :-)) I know I used to harvest it when I was a teen-ager..(around Christmas time), hoping I might get a girl to kiss me. I don't recall whether it worked.

:) we would hang it under the ceiling... and then at dancing parties boys would try to kiss girls under the mistletoe... don't know if it really works, but then again so many plants have magical powers just because they can help bodies restore the balance...
but it was just me saying that :)

Nice Capture ;-))

Well Howard one of the hawks was biting the other on the back of the neck while balancing on her back. I think that means more hawks later this year.

Strange, my EXIF information shows what focal length was used. (But not so with the pictures from my old point&shoot camera, though).

Best regards,
