Photo of the Week: Bravery In The Face Of Impossible Odds

A Female Northern Harrier (Circus cyaneus) being chased by a female Red-winged Blackbird (Agelaius phoeniceus)
Nikon D300, ISO 400, 300mm f2.8 AF-S lens, Nikon TC17EII Teleconverter, 1/2000 sec. @ f/5.6, tripod

This harrier (Circus cyaneus) is wearing what must be a look of surprise. I can’t help but feel inspired by the bravery of the tiny blackbird (Agelaius phoeniceus) in this David and Goliath scene.
