[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As I was walking several days ago, I caught sight of this crow on the telephone wire. He was watching the squirrels as they dropped crumbs, waiting for the opportunity to feed.

Meanwhile, when he spotted me, he had to decide whether or not I should be a force to fly away from. He started to fly several times, and in the end, decided I meant no harm. He waited out the other feeders, and once they'd left, he flew down for a small feast of his own.

Hi Kathy . Good to see you posting . this is a good close up of the Crow. Black is not an easy colour to get right you have done well with this one. The pose shows the open wing with good detail. well done TFS.

Cute capture...Clearly showing interactivity with the human world here. They truly are among us as you well know. Super stop action thereby getting slick and clear look a the feathers sheen. You are really improving on an already given talent.

Hi Kathy,
I just got back from vacation so hopefully I'll get back into the swing of things once again.
Love your photo, especially the glistening light off of the wings. It's funny but it almost looks like it hardly has a tail in this unusual pose you've captured.
The crows around here are very wary and wont even let you get close to them for a decent shot. Great job on yours!!
