He saw it first in the ice, a blur out of nowhere. Reflected in the white river, it came without scale or context, and at first it was as likely a moth as a bird. At least, that was what he'd thought. He'd been out hunting the colt since just after dawn, and his eyes were tired. He thought he'd walk the steep shore, just in case the knucklehead had ventured in. A Morgan is supposed to be smart, he thought, but this roan bastard takes the cake for pea-brain. fiction R. T. Smith Cooper's hawk wing is from the MU Bird and Mammal Collection, Walter Wehtje, curator. Photographed by Gene Royer. Ice photograph by Mario Klingemann.
