A commenter on this photo wrote, "Amazing!! These types of shots just don't drop into one's lap. There has to be a very talented photographer behind the camera." Indeed! Thank you to the very talented Rick Derevan for sharing this photograph of a northern harrier (Circus cyaneus) at San Luis National Wildlife Refuge, California. It's truly a beauty.
