Default Joe the crow

I really like crows. They just exude intelligence and I think they're just beautiful.





These next two show what happened after he discovered a penny at the bottom of the birdbath. Sorry for all the motion blur. This guy wasn't exactly posing.



PTUI!

Thanks, Steve & Gilles. I wish I could have react a little faster to pop up my adjustments to stop the penny action. It happened pretty fast and he as GONE.
