A hawk enjoying a moment of clear skies from the CA fires.

The state of California is enduring some of the worst fires in history. We live in the bay area and the smoke has been terrible. One afternoon we had a moment of fresh air and I sat outside and captured this hawk near the moon. The sky still had a pink tinge to it that you can see reflected in the clouds and hawk's feathers.
