This was taken while I was out with a client last winter shooting raptors. My client drove all the way from northern Alaska to Southern California to shoot with me but unfortunatly the 3 day shoot was plagued with torrential rain.
We were blessed with sun on the last evening and we nailed some beautiful Harrier frames that evening. This one was taken just as this Harrier banked away after noticing our truck and the frame rate and AF of the D5 revieled this beautiful pose.
Hope you like her.

D5---850mm---f5.6---ss1/3200th---ISO800---Handheld@4:50pm---35% crop

Thanks as always for looking and for your input.  I appreciate it.

well done that you took the vertical approach on this one and the added light was the bonus, nice one DAVID.
