Pallid Harrier poses for a few seconds only

This ringtail Pallid Harrier was stumbled upon at first light in our hire car. It was feeding on a small green snake no more than five or six yards from the car. I'm not sure who was more surprised ! The window was wound down slowly and I managed about twenty shots in a continual burst before it flew. Being so close, the centre spot focus lock had to moved to the right edge to achieve focus on the eye instead of the wing.

EXIF Detail: Camera Nikon D2x. Program Mode. Aperture: F/6. Shutter 1/160s. ISO 250. Exp -0.3 EV. White Balance Auto.
