Default Black Crow & White Snow

Black Crow & White Snow

I was thinking it would be fun to try and get a keeper of a crow standing on a snow drift. While I was waiting for one to land on the snow a couple showed up in the tree above the snow bank.

1.


2.


3.
Drum Roll: Boom, Boom, Boom


4.


A fun new idea to try

#3 looks quite good. that is a difficult shot to exposure properly. but you have good feather detail

All are fine, but the last two are especially brilliant! Wonderful capture of the bird's character, and of the wintry landscape as well.
