The Rabbit's Eye View

Sometimes you're in the right place at the right time, with a camera pointing the right way.

Standing on the cliffs of Palos Verdes, I watched a red-tailed hawk speeding to and from its nest, hunting for lizards and the like to feed its chicks. It moved fast, a swept wing bullet in the sky. But I did manage to capture one shot, as I tracked the bird along the cliff face with a 300mm lens.

If I'd been prey it would have been the last thing I saw...

Great picture! They can be fairly difficult to capture on the wing.
