These are such unusual Hawks, with their habit of just slimming the tops of the grass, wings held to make a 90 degree turn. They always spook me, when I see them coming over the marsh.

These are the best shots of them I've ever seen. (And don't you wish they still kept the folk name, "the Marsh Hawk?")

Well done!

Dave

I must agree with the others Roger. These are outstanding. I tried for several years before I got even one good shot of a Harrier and I'm still trying.
Excellent series of shots. Color me green.

Great Roger...the Harrier looks as if it's keeping it's eyes on you..what's the saying..."watch me like a Hawk..."

Although I think this saying is usually reserved for wives keeping an eye on their husbands.
