I am in Montara, CA south of SF. This year we have a lot of hawks in front of my house. But they all have banded stripes on their tails. this is a great shot of the tail. Looks like you are at Sam's restaurant or on a deck on the water's edge.

Pretty animal, background a bit distracting.

One of the only times I've been able to see the red tail -- excellent exposure and positioning.

Nice capture, but awfully centered and seemd a tiny bit dark.

Nice close up - good classic image here. Focus could perhaps be slightly sharper, but its still a great shot.
