Northern Harrier

May 17, 2019

Been watching this female harrier grab either clumps of nesting material or prey in her talons, hard to tell from this distance, and carrying it on short trips to a nest that's off to the right of this frame. Meanwhile the male has been seen displaying by essentially dive bombing her over and over as she perches.

Captured with the Canon EOS-1D Mark IV and Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS USM +1.4x III on May 15, 2019 at 6:39 PM. I used AI Servo AF mode and multi-segment metering. Auto WB setting.

Raw processed in DPP4. NR, sharpening, cropping, enhanced OOF blur in PS.

Canon-1D Mark IV
700mm · f/5.6 · 1/1250s · ISO 800
