Found this Northern Harrier at Bolivar Flats while taking shorebird photos. Tracked him from my prone position as he flew along the shoreline for a good series of shots. This photo is my favorite pose but sometimes you can’t control the backgrounds.
Taken with Canon 7D and Canon 500mm F4 IS II lens with 1.4x III teleconverter mounted on Skimmer ground pod with Wimberley II gimbal head
Still a sweet shot. Love the angle and sweep of the wings. What is that in the background anyway?

I like that look and the flight angle.

Thanks Doug. I’m not sure what the structure is in the background. I’ll have to look next time that I’m out there.

Thanks Lyle. Just wish that he had a clean background when he did his best pose.

Tim, I not only like the capture I like the background. Gives it an additional twist. Good job.

Thanks David. It’s a tower of some kind on the north side of the peninsula.
