I didn't know they do that Paul. I thought they were fearless predators.

If you use post processing to increase black level and contrast, it will look much better


Heres another go - I pulled the blacks back by 40 an dadded a small amount of clarity - done this to the jpeg.

Another stunning sequence shalu !

Thank you, Vassilis!

Very true Shalu, but it seems that they have to renew their vows every spring. So it is sorta like they are a new bride and groom every year.  :p Did they manage to fledge all 5 last year?
That is really an excellent action BIF shot of them exchanging the gopher.

Thank you very much, Mike! The kids all did fine and left to find their own turf. First the pair raised two young ones, then built another nest and raised three more kids.

Dont foreget though it is a Huge crop from 6000 its cropped down to 1800, so the detail is bound to take a hit.

When I'm not swamped shooting headshots or portraits, I love catching birds in the woods.
I've got a few others on my site at www.armatophotography.​com (external link)

That's a first-rate harrier shot, Martin.

Nice work on capturing the hand off (or foot off as the case may be), Shalu.
