Yay! I was right about...everything except the owl, hahaha.

I think #1 is a red-tailed hawk as well. It flew over me a little while later and I got a better look at it, and it looked pretty much like the other red-tail :)

I LOVE the first photo of the harrier with the foothills in the background. Beautiful.


Thank you! It is really lovely here. The environment makes a great background for wildlife photography, too...makes me want to improve my skills and invest in some better glass:
