Harrier Hawk, North of Santa Cruz

Click on the photo to see it bigger

New image up in my gallery. I shot this photo of a Harrier Hawk flying low over a field of tall grass, "harrying" for prey. It was quite the surreal experience, near the ocean , North of Santa Cruz, to enter the domain of this remarkable creature. At one point he came over to check me out, and hovered above me.
