maybe not the best picture of a flying raptor but still unusual enough to show it: a melanistic adult female Montagu's Harrier on its way down south

Hello Tom,
Not easy to take such a sharp photo in this windy conditions. And a special one of this Montagu's Harrier. Beautiful clear colours and a fine composition.

Hello Tome
worth to see this beauty,
good composition.
perfect sharpness.
best wishes,

Hi Tom,
Yes, I agree, it is unusual. In thumbnail I could not figure out what it is about but it was clear as soon as I opened it. Very good action. Well done.
