Five seconds. I was five seconds too late. It might as well have been five hours. A hawk swooped over the house and landed in the tree right in front of me. I reached for my phone but by the time I had it set to camera, the hawk tipped a wing at me and flew off.


Maybe I’ll get that close again. Maybe not. Lesson here. Find the speed setting to change from phone to camera. But in my defense –


Who thought a hawk would land in my garden?


Worse was to come. This time I was lazing on the front deck of the boat with a book, phone nearby, with camera setting on, in case one of the pelicans landed on a nearby piling.


Mad squawking to starboard jerked me upright.


Down in the water a pelican and a sea gull were having a tug of war over a piece of fish gut.


(That delicacy had drifted down from where the fishermen clean the daily catch.)


Scrabble, fumble, camera oh camera where art though! Hidden underneath a towel for protection from the sun. And once again I was too late.


The pelican slurped down the entrails, a miffed sea gull looking on and another Kodak moment lost. I probably could have sold that photo.


Oops. No excuse. Be ready, be vigilant. We have no idea when our Lord will return.


Matthew 25:1-13


Matthew 25:10 “And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.”
