Man is it nice to be back on high speed but sure wish I was still at the resort. We were not home more then an hour and I got the urge to shoot so my wife and I went down to the Marsh. The parking lot was packed so we hit the Halls Rd. paths and I came up with nothing but as I was heading back I caught a Northern Harrier buzzing over some fields so I positioned my self with the sun at my back and kept my fingers crossed. Well, someone was listening to my mumblings as he flew right by me. This 80-400VR lens gave me a few issues and made it very tough to shoot but I came away happy and well rewarded with my efforts.

Not bad for a half hour visit to the Marsh.

Cheers,

It blows my mind that you come up with those shots of that bird in just a half hour visit to the marsh. Well done. TFS.

Nice Airic, lovely series. Did you get these around the open field? That's where I saw at least 4 of them. I wasn't patient, but If you waited along the path there would be many opportunities, I was tempted to park myself in the middle of the field but I hear it's frowned upon by the birding community.

I was actually heading out and saw him flying around the field in front of the Sobeys complex. It was a good chase and a gamble to get the sun on the right side but it paid off when he flew by right where I wanted him. Complete luck on the timing.

I know eh? I would be happy with one of these shots.

Awesome as always Airic. Glad you got back safe and sound :thumbup:
