September 30, 2019

Location: Titusville, Chain of Lakes Park

I'm known as a Mole Cricket
I have a sneaking hunch
That the Red-shouldered Hawk had bad intentions
When he invited me home for lunch.

(Click to enlarge the photo and check out the hawk's beak. I had no idea that hawks eat bugs!)
Well, now I'm inside his tummy
You think he's tough - but I've heard the rumors
Underneath that bird of prey exterior
He's wearing fluffy white bloomers.
