    Got up early Sunday morning,with Mrs.DD and the dog in tow we made
    a stop for coffee and donuts and headed to Apopka.

    On this day you couldn't swing a dead cat by the tail without hitting a BWT

    Came around a corner and luckily there sat about 8 Fulvous.
    I was as happy as the Jose Wales to have the sun at my back to shoot these

    And a first for me,a Northern Harrier.
    Was fun to watch it having trouble in the wind.

    Sat and watched a immature Bald Eagle chase a flock of teal around for 10 minutes but they never came near me and I didn't want to be labeled as a skybusting photographer so I hit the road.

    Very nice captures. And that inverted harrier has to be a one in a million shot.
