From the archives: this photo is dated August 2010, and though that's a few years back,
it seems like yesterday. I was out doing what I do with my camera, and made a stop
at Parson's Park on Cranberry Lake, where I spotted this fellow. But no long lens.
The next day, by chance, I was there again, but again, no long lens. The 3rd day,
against the odds, I went back with the long lens, and my bird was still there. And
this is still my best Merlin shot to date.


  1. Nice of him to wait for you to come by with the long lens. :)

  2. Fabulous shot. Clearly, it waited for you.
