raven rune

we've been putting out food for ravens and crows as well as small birds... not sure what this raven thought it would find in the deep snow. but it left a little bit of its life story behind.

    That is simply beautiful

    What I really love about this picture is that you can SEE the raven landing in the snow, and its wings touching ever so gently as it plows into the snow.

    Or were those grooves made when it took off?

    Maybe Raven was saying, "I think I will leave a pattern, so the human ones can wonder... why?"

    A wonderful pattern and capture!!!

    The randomness of it all. Beauty from angles you'd never think of!!

    Call me crazy but I think it was paying you back for your kindness... a thank you snow angel if you will.

    looks like he was having a snow bath. if you like ravens you might want to check out one of Bernd Heinrich's books like "Ravens in winter". Definitely cool books to read.

    Dr. Pat yeah it is a really interesting book... I like how willing he is to say what he doesn't know. I have an aquaintence who went to interview him and had to help him carry a dead cow to his cabin before she could do the interview.... I don't think it went very well hahaha.

    Raven Runes, nice Sparks.

    nice image
  • Alan Grinberg 8y

    Great capture - too bad the quality isn't better. This may be the best bird "imprint" I've seen.
