    Man. You got a lifetime of Harrier pictures in a week... Again a great view of the face. Wish the entire BG was like the upper half. TFS

    Lovely. Sometimes you just have to deal with with the image not as perfect as you wish. Feed sharp would be great, but you can't change the situation except trying to spend more time with the bird.

    love the stare! man you are rocking it, I don't think anyone here has come this close to a grey ghost, good processing I might warm it up a tad and then tone down the whites a bit

    Stunning! Love the tones and the complete separation from the background.
    The eyes do have it!

    Who the heck gets "too close" to a grey ghost?....Great opportunity and you made the most of it.
    Love the BG colors.
    Feeling very jealous!!

    Too close sounds like a nice problem to have here. Nice view of those eyes. Background is great.

    Great shot!, so my question is how close were you to the bird when you shot this image. Is there any cropping involved here?
