By John_Wannop    
Just spent the last hour cloning out a large crow out of this picture with my new Wacom bamboo tablet a lot better than using a mouse. Taken at Gigrin farm mid Wales.

A fantastic shot of the bird for starters, the snow has just given the shot the extra unique special look that's often so hard to find in wildlife photography.
