Default Female Northern Harrier (The Marsh Hawk)

Usually, these raptors are not very cooperative and tend to keep their distance from my camera. However, this day I had the good fortune of having this female fly right past the viewing platform in perfect light. Thank you very much.

I appreciated all the nice compliments. I have to admit that this is, hands down, the best shot of a harrier I have ever gotten. All the stars aligned for this one.
