This handsome creature, perched atop a fencepost near the celery fields, is a red shouldered hawk. I drove by it and thought, "hawk". A millisecond later, after my brain registered "hawk!", I quickly turned around. I was pretty far away and was quite excited to snap this shot without disturbing it, even as I set up my tripod. Within seconds it was gone. You know what ended up scaring it away? A pesky little crow. It buzzed by a few times and finally the hawk decided it wanted some peace, and took off.
