Northern Male Harrier

A migratory raptor to my area from November to late April and a very hard raptor to capture! Anyone here having any luck capturing these raptors?

Okay, I'm done attacking my own reflection in your car's paint, and sure I'll pose for you:


Nice shot Otto

I have more photo gear than I need. The blame lies squarely with Canonrumors

I spent many hours last winter trying to get a good cardinal picture..... I had some good ones but none of them compare to yours. Wonderful shot!
The best camera is the one in your hands

Beautiful ... what a coincidence, just today morning I saw this bird really close by, on the road, while I was driving to work ... didn't know what it was called ... now I know ... a very beautiful bird.

Diablo, catching them on the glides is the best way but they are somewhat erratic, reminding me of the F-111 using its ground avoidance radar. 

J.R., those Himalayan Bulbuls look interesting. 

mackguyver, Great shot of the Cardinal!  Now if you had shots of it attacking your paint with a can of the wax in the picture, it would be a cardinal endorsement for the shine :)

This is one from earlier in the year when I finally started using the 5D MK III instead of the 7D.  This Western Bluebird hovered then grabbed the worm from the high grass.  I just watched as it was nearly in line with the sun.  Fortunately for me it landed on the closest boulder before beating the worm in a pulp for breakfast.  600 f/4 v1 w/1.4  1/800 : f/9 : ISO 400

This is a shot made by the Norwegian Professor Audun Rikardsen. Shot with a wide angel lens, with the camera on a remotely controlled floating device. I wish I had a higher resolution copy to share.

That is a pretty awesome shot!

Love those ospreys, CTJohn!  How close was the nest and situated where?

 Looks like a female Northern Harrier to me. It has that Owl like look.
