A Cool Place To Land

Monday is always irrigation day in the big orchard.
I go out early turn on the water and let it run for a couple of hours.
That way,  when I go back out to walk the rows, I can tell right a way
 the trees that are getting water and the ones I need to work on.

Usually I jump on the quad, ride out, turn on the valve and head bead
 to the house to do morning chores.  Yesterday I walk, taking the camera
 along to get shots of the turkey babies.

After the turkeys got fed up with me stalking them and flew off,
I started back to the house and came upon this young hawk.
It was surprising that he didn't fly away and actually set there for quite awhile.

At first I thought he had caught breakfast, as he 
kept looking down at the ground.   Then realized, there was a pin hole 
in the water pipe and he was standing in the mist of water spraying out of it.
With all the extreme heat, he managed to fined a cool place to land.
