This is a photograph of a seahawk taking flight. I shot this on 35mm film (Fuji Provia) at 10 frames a second (3.6 seconds to shoot the whole role of film). The first shot (which is this photo) I took caught the bird in its power stroke. I had never seen a seahawk before this. The location is Point Pinos. This is one of my favorite photographs.
