photo of the week - jan 23, 2019
I'm not going to pretend otherwise... I'm SO excited by this photo. I've been waiting for the opportunity to photograph a hawk in-flight for a long time now. I sometimes drive around Sonoma looking for hawks and don't see a single one. Other times I see tons of them when I'm not even intending to (I've learned to keep my camera with me as often as possible, for this reason). But then, when I do spot one in flight, they are often either too far away, flying away from me, or simply moving too fast for me to get a good, clear shot. But this beauty flew right past me, nice and steady, and at a perfect distance. And suddenly all my "failed" missions were completely worth it.
"Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience."
