I suspect this is the same guy I shot yesterday....almost fearless compared to his brethren.

That is quite sharp, considering 2X TC being used. Nice!

Very nice Ian. And she is female. Males have spotted breasts and slate coloring on the wings.

Thanks Linh, the 2X III works very nicely on the 500 II lens.

Ah, thanks for that John. So, colors are kind of like Northern Harriers...more gray on the male, more browns on the females....interesting​!

Don't I know that Al! I kept driving and parking 2 carlengths closer and it didn't budge. Until it did. Thanks for commenting!

Thanks Cheryl. This had to be a young one that didn't know enough to fly when I approached. There were 3 or 4 of them in the immediate area.
