A super aerial image of this Harrier and captured perfectly Ove!
 
A brilliant detailed and well focused capture you have of this beauty, Ove. Brilliant timing, well done.

Really lovely Ove, with the subdued autumn colours, and the exposure well controlled so that the body, undertail and underwing are evenly lit and detailed. And of course perfectly sharp.

I'm intrigued as to how people such as yourself and JJ get such excellent results from a non-stabilised lens. You may used a tripod or monopod, I guess, but if you're using it handheld, maybe stabilisation is overrated!
