With a week of projected temperatures in the triple digits I wanted to post something cool looking, something that had snow in it, something that made me feel cooler just by looking at it. This juvenile Northern Harrier in flight over a snowy field caught my eye so here it is.

Temps were probably in the teens when I photographed this juvenile harrier in January of 2010 at Farmington Bay. Ahhh. I am not wishing for an early end of the summer but snow in the field looks rather inviting to me right now.

Update on the Antelope Island fire: It is out, they will announce the number of acres burned soon. I am so very glad it is out.

Life is good.

    I am thrilled to hear that the fire is out. Now the cost counting…
    Love that cool image.

    This image is “cool” in more ways than one! Our temps are only in the 90′, but bad enough. So very glad the fire is finally out…now for the sad details and tallies….

    And what a wonderful image it is! When I first move to San Francisco I missed the heat, but not anymore. Our high today will be 66 and mostly clear.

    As always your images are richly detailed and spellbinding. The Harrier is stunning and the snowy background works for me too. [Especially since it is very hot and humid here in San Diego.] Glad to hear that the Antelope Island fire is out.
