Another the rather photogenic merlin.

Sorry temporarily removed this - apologies Fraser. I thought I had created the green hue bottom left with the cloning, but it was there all the time. Panic on my part that the cloning was so poor.

Anyway as explained on earlier upload had to clone part of the background from what looked like lens flare but was in fact someones shoulder appearing briefly during the exposure.

Thanks all. It was actually sleet falling, but it's hard to tell the difference in this shot.

Thanks all, wasn't sure this one would actually be very popular. Not that it matters that much, just funny sometimes to see what does well.
