Out shooting some of the local ducks today (which I'll post shortly), and this Merlin landed in a tree to my left. Still of at a fair distance and he didn't turn around, just kept his back towards me before he flew off.
A substantial crop, portrait mode from a landscape shot. It was spot metered (against a thin overcast sky) at 0 EV, but I still ended up boosting EV by about +1 in Capture NX on the RAW file (Capture NX appears to be quite forgiving for + or - 1EV)
