Raven


Saturday I was on my way to the computer lab at the college when I heard a raven call out to it's mate. I looked up and there she was waiting. No sooner had I caught the shot he flew by and she was off to his side.

Oooo... E.A. Poe! Creepy. He is winter trying to keep off the coming of Spring. But we shall not let him! :D

You do not often show us b/w photos but this one is fabulous... I wondered if you were torn with what must have been exquisite blue skies... so glad you resisted as the raven is perfect in b/w!

Bises,

There's something about a crow sitting in the skeleton of a tree.

The word that comes to mind is sharp, sharp beak, sharp branches - nice!
