I was taking a walk at the once-abandoned church property, when I saw something out of place ... From a distance I thought someone had placed a boulder on top of the gravel pile beside the building ...
Then it moved - and flew away into a nearby oak tree!
I ended up nearly under the tree in which he perched ...
And I was wrong - he DID notice my approach!
He looked straight at me - and winked!
I must have taken a gazillion photos, but I was shaking so much only a few came out.
When I left, he was still in the tree watching me.
And I felt blessed by his presence.
