August 10, at Potter's Marsh near Anchorage on my cross-continent drive.  I saw a group of magpies hassling a merlin.  The merlin took off directly at me and I got this picture.  Unfortunately, the camera focused on the magpie, but I think it is still a pretty cool action shot.


Here is an earlier picture that shows the merlin better.

I think I could have done a much better job on this golden if I would have been better prepared for the fly by.  Expect the unexpected I guess!  Seattle's low light and clouds didn't help.
