2021 in Photos: Beautiful Portraits of the Hawk from Toronto’s Aga Khan Park
I captured the following photos of a hawk at Aga Khan Park on the morning of August 7, 2021 between 6:37 AM and 6:58 AM. When I arrived at the Park, I saw the majestic bird perched on the horizonal top of an electric pole with a fresh kill — a mouse. Then, after he had cleaned his plate, he flew to a nearby tree, where he gave me the opportunity to take more photographs. At one point, I was afraid it may swoop down on me and claw on my head or face!
It has been a magnificent year of photo taking at the Aga Khan Park and other parks, forests, rivers, lakes and gardens that I visited in and around Toronto. I begin the 2021 series with the hawk.
Note: All photos taken with Olympus E-M10, auto mode.
Hast thou not seen how that whatsoever is in the heavens and in the earth extols God, and the birds spreading their wings? Each — He knows its prayer and its extolling; and God knows the things they do.
Holy Qur’an, 24:41, Sura An-Nur (Chapter of The Light), translation by Arberry. See 7 parallel translations in Corpus Quran HERE
