Great shots, Duane; you nailed the focus very well for the bird being down in the grasses.

REALLY nice series Duane. That second shot is especially impressive, keeping focus in motion between while in the grass like that.

I find them to be very skittish as well. Have to be invisible to them though and they'll fly right at you.

Ahhh, saved the best for last. Great series with a stunner in number 3. The tall grass and warm tones are beautiful. Outstanding work Duane.

Nicely done Duane! As others have said great job keeping focus in the tall grass. They always seem to be on the move.

Thank you everyone. I got lucky with the burst (6 images) as this one hunted a grass line and she didn't stay around long after she saw me.

Wow, these are really excellent photos of the harrier. What makes it very unique is you got it in the middle of these reeds. Congrats Duane!


... does it really matter?i see with my eyes, i shoot with my fingers.
