Northern Harrier Fly-by
Caught this Northern Harrier in flight while taking shore bird photos at Bolivar Flats in Dec. I was laying in the muck with my ground pod at sunrise when this Harrier came up over the grass at the shoreline. He didn’t see me at first which gave me a chance to focus and track him for several shots. It’s always a challenge to get close to these raptors so I was pleased to get this shot.
Taken with Canon 7D and 100-400 lens mounted on Skimmer ground pod with Sidekick gimbal mount.
1/500 sec @ F5.6, + 1 exposure compensation, ISO 500, spot metering, no flash.
