Harrier Over November Fields ::: for Scenic Sunday

We had a Hen Harrier on the island once - and no adequate camera available. But it is still in my head.

Your words paint the picture your camera records. Beautiful.

The wings make him stand out nicely against that harsh background.

What a stunning scene! And the light tones of the bird make a fascinating contrast!

I like the way the grasses look and the Harrier completes the scene.

Oh my what a wonderful capture with your camera. This entire scene just sets such a wonderful mood. The contrast of the dark and the lights is wonderful.

I have been trying to catch a shot of a crane that visits our pond for weeks now and no luck.

I hope your Sunday is blessed with peace!:-)
