I ventured out in the rain today and found this lovely lady. Full frame shot in pretty lousy conditions (5D mk iii comes to the rescue again).

Totally overwhelmed by the response (and banter) on the Merlin photograph, thank you all for your attention. Special thanks Adrian for his GEA and Dean, Sylvia and Martin for their UA.

As always all (and I mean all) comments, clicks and critiques welcome.

As good a Woody, as I have seen over the last week or so

First class exposure to hold the whites and the perch and backdrop are a bonus.

Several marks, which I presume are rain drops, but they do not detract from the overall image
