A Merlin hung around our farm for a few days. I decided to combine a few of this raptors great expressions in Lightroom.

Thanks Rog, and very funny on the classes! I can't retain anything. I would have to look up the directions to create it again!

I like the way you arranged these in a tryptic; they look nice that way.
It's also nice to see Sycamore branches. We don't have them out here where I moved to.....I miss them.

Just thinking.......you could enter one of these into the A-Z no rules thread when "X" comes around!

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Thanks Bill. I try to follow along in video instructions, but I get so frustrated. Books are much easier for me to follow along with, though a lay-flat format would be nicer!

Thanks Tom. I will look up that thread to see what it is all about.
I'm glad his perch looks like a branch, but it is actually the metal frame work of our canvas style, cover-all barn. The white behind the falcon is the white canvas.

Oh, the branch behind the Merlin (not the one he/she is perched on) is what looks like a sycamore branch to me. I suppose I was mistaken. Really nice images nonetheless.
