Awesome Ian, You must have had a hoot shooting this guy!!
Thanks Jeff. It was fun, I was on a dirt country road with no traffic, so I owned the road and used it all

Wow that is one fantastic set! I enjoyed the whole series. The second to the last in flight shot is amazing!
Thanks very much Carol.

Wonderful series Ian and congrats on finding a willing subject.
Thanks John. It was pretty windy, and I think he was focusing on his hunting more than on me.

Another species that I have not seen. Nice set, Ian. The unique pose in #6 and the background makes it my favorite.
Thanks Linh, you have a good eye that's my fave too.

What great images, Ian! I especially like the first one....it's really cool to see the top side so nicely depicted. Very, very well done!
Thanks Tom, as you know, you take what you're given

great series, Ian! i have a few shots of the elusive "gray ghost", but not many - you were fortunate to find one so willing to accommodate your lens!
Thanks Rocky! This bird's colouration is almost like a stealth aircraft. When he was flying against a treed background, there was a fair bit of focus hunting going on. But as he got closer, that resolved itself.
Thanks very much Red.
Much appreciated Joe.

Wonderful set! Don't often see harrier shots (or harriers, period) in the summer, and these are a real treat.
Thanks Mike. They aren't unheard of around here, but certainly are one of the tougher ones to find.
