    Default NOT a Harrier

    We were sitting at the kitchen table when a female Harrier flew by heading towards our marsh. Husband said he was going to take cam and try to catch her hunting down there. Came back little while later with these.




    This one kind of caught me off guard. Handheld 400mm f5.6L with 1.4X TC attached, shot at approx. 20ft distance as it flew by. Has four shots of these in-flights, as Harrier only made a brief flight at about 300ft away.


    Reality is a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there!

    Excellent shots. I really like the second one. I've tried catching them in mid flight before but I seem to have more luck with them when they are sitting still.

    Not at all RM. He is into the outdoors/photography as much, if not more so than me. We learn a lot from each other in this regard.
