Zenfolio | Dave Waddell's Photography | Female Harrier: lunch

16 photos
Here are 16 photos of an adult female Norther Harrier. The Harrier is in the process of eating a vole that she just captured. The Harrier was aware of my presence for she could hear quite clearly the sound of my camera's mirror slap and shutter. She obviously tolerated my presence because of her hunger and proceeded to "take care of business". Without doubt a very natural event in the life of this beautiful raptor and it was a delight to view and capture on camera......cheers...dave
