the verge of consumption... nestled in the seaside bluffs of Half Moon Bay, CA.

I almost fell off my chair when I saw the simultaneous expression of predator and prey....

    thanks y'all
    Ari: I could get so close because there was a deep ravine separating us. The hawk took two swoops down before making the catch.
    After the first miss, I discovered an entire family of quail that were remaining totally silent (to me at least) right next to me. After the catch, the hawk landed on a precipice along the jagged bluffs. I was able to watch the whole meal from the other side of a steep gully. So I was close, but safely separated by a chasm. Amazingly, after the meal, the hawk flew over the chasm and landed just a few feet away. She stared at her observer for a while before flying off. It was a magic moment.
