My recent visit to the new hotel/real estate development called Cap Cana in the Dominican Republic has left me just this close to being speechless.

Taking flight: Falconry at Wye Marsh

Hawks may not be that rare in Ontario, but few people see more than just a glimpse of them, and even fewer will have the opportunity to see these beautiful birds up close, or watch as one gracefully soars through the air.
