    I finally got to enjoy the great weather and hunt for some elusive raptors at Lynde shores in Whitby, it's very hard to see them and when you do they are way too far for some decent pics. Today I got many opportunities with them flying over me and looking for prey but they would always catch me off guard.

    I only came out with 2 decent pics one of them is heavily cropped. They are a male and female Northern Harrier

    That second shot is sweet and the Red Wing comes in a close second. Now that I'm back on high speed I can view these posts.

    nice work joat...think I'd crop up and in from bottom left on the first one just to concentrate the hawk more towards lower left corner for a more pleasing compo....love the clouds in the BG :D

    good tip bro, I ddin't even bother with the first, just a plain old center crop, but that would probably make a better pic.
