Hi Jane/Neighbour :)
There is something about this shot that reminds me of the Alfred Hitchcock film, 'The Birds'. Great action shot.

Very tired and sleepy!
Will be back!
It is classic Jane. Does it remind you of days in the "hood"? Just kidding...I can see you eye as you see this shot. I can feel your thinking as you thought it. You have at times, although a bit more rare with you, to pass along a certain feeling...in images..this is what it is all about!

i loved to read the humoristic biginning of your notes,
i am still laughing, what ! no beautiful Arizonian blue sky ?
excellent image Jane of the life of birds in the nature,
excellent timing to run and shoot them in image, TFS
Nice to know you got some rain. Nice moment and good capture of crows in typical behavior with beaks open.I don't hear them much any more and I kinda miss it.
I don't see any EXIF data except aperture of f4.0 and 1/1000s shutter, but I think this is a case where you could get a lighter photo with more details if you had over-exposed a little, maybe a full f-stop. That would have given you a lighter image and possibly a little more detail on the difficult black crows.
That's a fast shutter speed for such dark conditions. The camera probably exposed for the sky which, though dark, was much lighter than the crows.
Don't know what camera you use either, but I will tell you what I do with my Canon Rebel XT. In a case like this I would over-expose the scene by shooting in aperture priority mode with aperture set about f8.0. I then hold down the "av" button with my thumb and turn the dial (which is near the shutter button) to the right or + side. That tells the camera you want more light in the scene and thus slows down the shutter a little.

Hi Sister Jane,

A nice capture of these two crows chattering. We have an urban legend here when crows tend to chatter continuously then some guests will come to your house. And I have marked it 85% true. Superb composition and good details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

So what's all that shouting about Jane? :)
Not far from silhouette, the squabblers are well seen discussing their differences..I can almost hear their loud annoying chatter from here :)
