Thanks! Nothing beats shooting with a full frame, but the birds have to get close, such as in this case.
Nice! He's looking right at you
It does look like that, like I was flying alongside. I had to point my lens at crazy angles to get this shot, one of the reasons I have been moving away from tripods.
Magnificient bird, and great photo!
Is it a peregrine falcon? (No, it's not. The wings are wrong.) I do know it's a wonderful photo. I'll look around in your gallery.
I am pretty sure it is a Harrier. Very brilliant in the sunshine as it flew over with all those white feathers. Thanks for taking an interest in my gallery!
So majestic against such a pale sky!
Thanks! I was lucky with the weather as we have been getting a lot of rain this year. I actually got a sunburn the day this was shot, that's how sun deprived my skin is.
We're having off and on rains here in Kansas. And there's still snow falling in the Rocky Mountains, the Cascades of the Pacific Northwest, and the Sierras' of California. Who says there's no climate change?
I am in the Pacific Northwest and it has been one of the most extreme winter/ spring seasons in recent memory. Bonus for the local mountains ski /snowboarding season, and I figured out how to use flash because there is no sun.
Lovely shot of this gorgeous bird. The sky looks good too
