Artist's Description

The last few days walking or scootering around San Francisco and without a camera – any camera – I’ve seen Red-Tailed Hawks flying not even 30 feet over me in many occasions as I just watched in amazement. A day prior, I remember being near the Marina Green of San Francisco, and as I drove my little scooter toward the water at the Marina, I looked up and not 20 feet above me was a hovering hummingbird. I slowed and watched as I passed beneath…. after I passed that little bird, I slowed again and stopped even, and looking back, I could see that tiny humminbird was still there, hovering…. not moving at all. Today I went to snap Sam the Star of Sutro Baths, and I had the right equipment with me for once! No birds…. done with Sam and riding back through the Presidio, I finally glimpsed to my right ahead of me two Red-Tailed Hawks gliding in a slow circle over some trees…. I slowed and turned off the road and stopped. Grabbing my Canon EOS 7D with Canon EF 100-400 f/4.5 IS L lens with a Tamron 1.4 teleconverter, I started snapping and after a few minutes noticed people and car drivers staring at me. I realized my scooter helmet was still on. hahahaaa
