p.1 #1 · White-tailed Kite And Raven (4x)


I wish Ravens and Crows would stop pestering raptors, but until they do, it's fascinating to watch the interaction...While driving in my Tundra I saw a WTK being blown by the wind in a tree on the other side of the street, hanging precariously on to a single branch. I immediately pulled a U, parked and got out my 7D/500 f4 on the BushHawk (Don't Leave Home Without It! ) Soon an "unkindness" of ravens (yup, that's the name for a flock of ravens, I just looked it up ) comes along -- and I watched the show. All shot in RAW, run through and converted to JPEG in Canon DPP, and further tweaked in PSPx3. Questions, comments and critiques welcome.

Best Wishes,
Steve

Nice behavior set Steve. Our crows actually help locate our raptors in the distance. They make great spotters.

That's looking at it on the positive side, Herb! You're right, whenever I see a raven or crow "divebombing" something I can't see, I know it's a raptor... Thanks!

The second is quite an image and you handled a huge exposure challenge. The last is a beauty.

Great sequence. I'd say the kite sure was hanging on.
