Very nice! Its not often you can use the word "crow" and "majestic" in the same breath, but that one looks majestic! I also like the third one a lot. Even though the background is the same color, you really got the DOF working for you. Good job.

Great shots, I know how hard it is to get a shot of a Crow.

Love the first and third ones - the third one especially for some reason. All your lovely crow pictures give me hope that someday, maybe, I'll manage a decent crow picture (hasn't happened yet, though). I admire the middle one because you got so much detail in the bird, when it is almost totally backlit, and didn't blow out the sky. Wonderful results from a most difficult situation, trying to balance the exposure.

Hope you are enjoying our lovely warm (like hot) weather - or has it been cloudy/foggy at the beach (as I sit herelisten to the wind howling this morning, not a cloud in the sky and a boring sunrise).

75 yesterday and 85 today with no clouds, but the weather peop;e warn it will be 15 degrees colder tomorrow, BRRRR, a 70 degree day.

The dove was a real tough one, but it is easire to pull out detail from the shadows than to bring back some highlights that are no longer there.

Did a sunset shot last night, but am going to try again this evening with more than one shot blended together to make it work.
