Great shots, Roger. I don't think I've ever seen a Harrier.

I was real happy to finally get a couple of keepers. IMHO this is one of the more difficult birds to get a keeper of.

Hey Roger,

Those are some awesome shots. i have never seen a harrier before. At first, I thought that the bird was a type of owl, but I can see now that it is not. What beautiful shots...particularly the 1st, 2nd and 4th of the series.

Good job roger , when I see one here in the midwest it's always so far out in the field it almost renders it useless. I know how hard it is to capture a shot like this.
Thanks Randall

Now that I got me a few keepers I am thinking all the other attempts were worth the effort.

I thought you had photos of the Marines jet fighter plane.

Wonderful shots. Can you tell me what lens and setting you were using and how close you were?
