Some owls and harrier shots from today

I posted this in "Nature and Wildlife Photography" but since I shoot all these with A99 and Sony 70-400G I would like to post here as well.

I live in Vancouver so we have active short eared owls and northern harriers these days. It's easy to spot male and female northern harriers:

Male harrier gliding

Female harrier flying by

Now for some short eared owls:

low flying over frozen creek

They like post, big or small

SEO and harrier don't like each other, often competing for the same food (field mice). Today I captured some fighting scene. Too bad they are not very sharp but they do tell a story. I will try harder next time!

"This is mine! Stay away!"


chasing game

Getting too close!

Sh*t happened, SEO dropped his food!

At the end SEO dropped his prize (a field mice) fled away, too bad I didn't capture that falling mice (too far away and out of camera focus too). Hope I will get beter luck next time. Thanks for looking.
