A Red-Tailed Hawk surveys the expansive Point Reyes landscape on a foggy day.

Most Red-Tailed Hawks are so skittish that just slowing your car down the wrong way can risk scaring them off. This one didn’t mind when I pulled off on the other side of the road and was pretty relaxed as I photographed it from the car. I was even able to ease my way out of the car and photograph it from behind the car, which helped me to line up this shot showing off the landscape.
