I went out with some photographer friends to hunt for Harrier’s on Saturday. We spent the day on the coast.  We headed further north for some lunch and more birding then headed south again. Hiking back to the field where we had good luck several hours before we found this Male Harrier not too far off the trail eating his dinner. This was definitely the highlight of the day for me. I was shooting him from his shady side so  I got some nice side lighting.

I spent most the day a bit frustrated with the limits of my focal range. I have a definite case of NAS for a super telephoto lens! I should have rented one for this outing.
None-the-less It was a fun, and exciting day.
