Piercing eyes of a young Red Tail Hawk. Photo was taken in Portola Valley on our regular Saturday walk.
First seen on the grass looking around before taking flight.
Heading towards the fence at take off speed.
Change of wing positon amd up he goes.
From here it looks like he will hit the fence.
He changes his trajectory and on to the fence he lands.
Surveying the area as I try to get closer for a better picture.
He turns his head to look at me before flying away.
