So I had a chance to hit the gym today. I parked on 39th St. in Sioux Falls. Now, for those of you on the coasts, Sioux Falls is a city - the largest in SD with close to a quarter of a million people.
A rabbit goes bounding across the street. We see this all the time. But all of a sudden there's a blur and, just as the rabbit makes it to the cover of shrubs in front of an office building, a hawk completes a dive at it and then with a couple of muscular flaps is up in a tree to wait for another chance.
Living in SoCal just five years ago, I would have had to see that on Animal Planet. Here, it's just the neighborhood.
