I was walking up a hill to a place called Inspiration point and I saw a couple on a bench enjoying the ocean view. They were able to escape my lens because this guy caught my eye.
Then he decided to fly away. To be honest I was amazed that he was able to lift his chubby little body with those short wings. These were taken in Corona Del Mar California. I think it's interesting that he has red on the side of his neck in the bottom photo but not in the top.
