Northern Harrier Dive Bombs a Short-eared Owl

I was watching the group of Short-eared owls recently ( Ive posted a couple images from that encounter) when a Northern Harrier decided to try to put muscle onto a Shortie! Not sure if it was meant for play or territorial in nature but this frame shows talons out, I suppose in all likelihood..more like a "get out of my territory" kind of threat!
