Prairie Skimmer

A Northern Harrier hen makes its hunting rounds in late afternoon on Nov. 9, 2015, at the Ridgefield NWR.  Once I’ve positioned myself with the setting sun behind the camera, I just wait for something to fly by.  Automatic lovely light.  Here, the bird is just coming out of a turn.

5D Mark III, 1/1600, f4, ISO 500, 500mm, 4:00 p.m.
