"Waiting for the Hawk" (4-19-17 014) was just fixed up (cropping, and a bit of color work, and sharpening and diffusing) from a very new pic. This bench is where I was sitting when a hawk flew so close over my head toward the sea it could have grabbed my cap if it wanted to. Earlier that same day, it had circled me so close and low I could have touched its wing tip on the second fly-by. Then a friend some days later got a photo of what I assume to be the same hawk at the bottom of the beach stairs that are just below this fence, holding its prey. I'd also tried to get pix of that hawk days before it ever buzzed me (posted the poor result here a while back). Upshot? I always look for a hawk when I approach this overlook.
