A Twitter user said, “I like that you can see the slit shift in the bottom birds vision where they go full binocular in comparison to the more restful more side laying eye of the bird on top not needing to focus,” while another added, “Tremendous photos. I saw a lateral version of this sort of exchange of a rodent a year ago about this time at Point Reyes. Absolutely thrilling to watch, seamless. One user also wrote, “Super sequence capture. Love Harriers. I've been seen all 3 of our native UK Harriers, Hen, Marsh & Montagu's, food pass, always a privilege”.
