    Thanks Gale - both are native to Virginia - I am not sure how often I have seen them around here - now I just have to learn what they look like up in the sky.

    Both wonderful pictures, but in the second one, the way the background colors coordinates with those of the bird and its perch is extraordinary.
     
  5. Both very nice images. I've never seen a Harris so I'm partial to that one. Well done!

    Jose & Keirin - thank you both - raptors are really great to shoot. I'm always looking for them now when I am drving down country roads - you never know when one will show.

    Hi Mark, great job, both very nice but I also lean towards #2 due to the background colors, very pleasing to the eye. - Jeff
