Just a few minutes after the kingfisher took off from the same perch (see yesterday’s post) a pair of ravens took it over. This time I had to wait until BOTH birds were in profile before shooting.  I was glad to get an image where the two birds are in an almost identical position.  Like the kingfisher, the ravens’ profiles are distinct and immediately recognizable.

I was thinking about saving this image for Halloween…now I’ll have to come up with something else!





  1. A beautiful shot !


  2. Gorgeous shot. What are the odds of getting that shot again? Borrowing from the words of Edgar Allan Poe, “Quoth the raven, “Nevermore.””

    • Thanks Mike,

      Not sure about “nevermore,” since for all I know the ravens rest on that lamp post every morning. I did get two other nice shots that I may post another time. In one of them, one of the ravens is bent down and appears to be staring intently at something below him in the water. It’s interesting that one gets a feel for the raven’s concentration just from a silhouette image.

      I deliberated about which image to post, and decided I liked the one with the ravens in similar poses the best.

      Thanks for your Poe-etic comments,

  3. It’s so hard to get them to sit nice like that!! Great composition.

    • Hey Lyle,

      You seem to do pretty well in the wildlife moment capture yourself in your blog. 🙂

  4. Something sinister underpins this photo. Hallowe’en comes to mind.

    • Hi A,

      I don’t consider ravens sinister, but since they’re often associated with Halloween, and since the colors in this image are Halloween colors, I thought it might be a fitting image for that day’s post. I’ve since come up with “Plan B.” Stay tuned…
