Excellent. I don't think I've ever gotten that close to a harrier.

thanks Ian- first decent shot ever for me. he was hunting over a canal next to the road, didn't seem to mind me- I drove ahead of him and let him come by a couple of times

Nicely done Bob. Harriers are cool. They don't seem to be concerned by human presence, well at least the ones I've seen.
