Another amazing capture Cheryl. The detail, focus and composition coupled with the presentation make this a cracking study

Thanks both.

I know that there is what looks like bad cloning to the right of the bird, but no cloning was done in that area. It is just very oof grasses.

Looking at it now at the reduced size on ePZ it does look a bit pants!

This is fantastic when viewed large. The detail is superb. Oddly enough I think a tighter crop would reduce the impact of the grass.

Thanks all, just me being picky again then. I guess it is cos I know what it should look like at 4000px.

The Merlin looks beautiful - love the plumage detail.
Must admit I don't like that splurge of grass either.Smile but I see your point re:- size.
