The Merlin (Falco columbarius)


I went to Ritakoski to shoot rapids.  I heard a voice of a  bird and noticed it to land on a stone in the river. Now is my first opportunity to test auto focus of my new camera (Canon EOS-1D X), I thought. I was waiting for about two hours it to go airborne.  And when it did, the settings in the camera were wrong.  Anyway, I got one pic where the merlin is flying.
