This is another bird I saw for the first time last week. She landed in front of me, spotted me and took off. A few minutes later, she landed and posed and then off again. I don't think she's too crazy about people.....D.

Hi Don,

Really interesting series, and lovely natural captures of a great bird. You did well to present us with a variety of "poses" and flight of this harrier.

Thanks for your patience and for sharing. I especially like the last photo's different perspective...

Paul

Nice series, too bad that one blade of grass is in the wrong place in #1.
