This Harrier flew around me in a field not more than 6 feet off the ground. She performed some amazing acrobatics as it hunted for small rodents before finally flying over to check me out. I set back and watched this beautiful raptor for hours.

Thanks for the comments Don and Mike. I was just going to post the flyover shot but decided to include the full frame shots as it moved and turned above the ground thus giving a feel of the Harrierscharacteristics in flight. This is truly a beautiful bird to watch.
