hello friends, crows and ravens are birds
that i never loved and it is here in TN
that i start to love them and if i had
a photo to do i decided to be in-flight

from All About Birds website


« American Crows are familiar over much of
the continent: large, intelligent, all-black birds
with hoarse, cawing voices. They are common sights
in treetops, fields, and roadsides, and in habitats
ranging from open woods and empty beaches to
town centers. They usually feed on the ground and
eat almost anything – typically earthworms, insects and
other small animals, seeds, and fruit but also garbage,
carrion, and chicks they rob from nests. Their flight style
is unique, a patient, methodical flapping that is rarely
broken up with glides. Crows are rarely found alone. »

Hi Asbed,

Certainly, with this type of pictures, we can take more fondness to these birds!... Is an excellent capture, with a powerful skills of doing to feel the movement. The natural frame with both threes on the right and on the left, does her even more good!. The "bird's silhouette" is exceptional, he was captured in a moment where leaves to see all his structure. Very good picture friend!



Hi Asbed,
Admire your inflightt shot. Good timing and technique. Very well done.

Hello Asbed,

Très belle série d'oiseaux en plein vol!
Et ici, juste entre les arbres, bien vu!

Bonne journée


Ciao Asbed, beautiful bird in splendid fliyng pose, good details and wonderful composition, very well done, ciao Silvio

bonjour Asbed
j'aime bien la silhouette de ce corneille d'Amérique, surtout la position des ailes et des pattes, grande netteté de l'oiseau, superbe ciel et décor naturel
Passe une bonne nuit

Bonjour Asbed,

Les arbres et les branches cadrent bien cette corneille. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de la corneille en vol. Ce ciel nuageux diffuse une lumière qui fait ressortir les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
