Our first hearty Minnesota snowfall of the season has arrived!  Waking this morning, I found myself energized by the few inches of white fluffiness blanketing the ground so I hopped in my car for a drive along the Mississippi River.

The biggest treat of the morning was spotting a Red-Tailed Hawk stoically sitting on a branch overlooking the river.  He appeared very majestic, silently overseeing the snow fall like a guardian of this great river.  Apathetically, he watched me as I photographed him from various angles.  Granted I couldn’t capture him as I would have liked, but I felt so blessed to see such a beautiful animal in this proximity.
