Crow tempting fate with a Peregrine Falcon

Yesterday while going to work, I noticed a couple of birds, one was on top of a telephone/power=line pole, while the second was flying by ans swooping down on the first. As I drove by I noticed the bird sitting on the pole was a Peregrine Falcon, and a Crow was flying by and diving at the Falcon. The Falcon wasn't flinching - just watching. I posted some images on my flicker account, and thy can be seen at:
Tempting Fate #1; #2 and #3.

I also took a hand held video of the action, and it can be seen at:

You Don't See This Everyday...

My son told me that there was a fence a block away from his middle school that had a large number of bees on one of the boards. I went over and was amazed to see a large number of bees. It appears as if a new Queen was searching for a new place to start a new hive. I posted four different images on my flickr account in a new set, of course called Bees. This set is located at Bees
