This smaller raptor is getting more common around the bay area in northern California. I love watching them hover or "kite" in place before diving straight down on their prey. These were taken at two different regional parks in my area. The majority are taken with the new 100-400II and 1.4TC, though you can see the exif if you click on the shot and go to Flickr

Great set! I like the blue background and the "here's looking at you kid" the most!
