Very nice Louie.
They are all great, but (for me) #2 is fantastic!
We are begining to see some arriving now too. We saw several over the weekend, but they were too far for decent images.

Well captured Louie. Most notable here is that they're all against a busy background which is tough to do for birds in flight.
Appreciate your commenting Bill, thank you.
Good ones - especially the first one.
Thanks Allan.

Thanks Phil, yes it's beginning to get a little more active around here now all we need is a bit more light.

I agree! Bravo!
Nick, thank you so much for your vote of confidence, I really appreciate it.
Excellent captures Louis as always. The light looks fantastic.
Thanks a lot.
Beautiful set! Excellent.
Thanks very much Phil.
These are beyond stunning, Louie! It's more than the blend of colors, details, backgrounds.......they hit that sweet spot of perfection, especially the first one!
Most appreciated Dossy, thank you so very much.

I feel honored that my images were chosen for the front page, really appreciate it.

Stunning set of images, Louie! Kudos for your tracking and exposure skills! #1 is my fav, but suggest extra sharpening of just the head and especially the eye. Then print it big and enjoy! The second image seems perfect as is! Another superb image.

Excellent set, Louie. I particularly like nos. 1 and 3. You made good on the opportunity. Really well done.

For two years we lived on a bluff overlooking a marsh that was hunting territory for a male harrier. Never could identify a pattern to his behavior nor did he ever happen by while I was armed. So frustrating.
