IOTW: Pensive Crow

Pensive Crow

In a pensive mood.

Taken during a day long photoshoot adventure with a telephoto around Lost Lagoon a few years back. The image turned out so sharp and crisp you can clearly see what look like crumbs on the birds beak. The detail of the feathers is amazing and the highlight in his eye helps the image come to life.

Some crows are capable of not only tool use but also tool construction, originally thought the sole purview of man. Crows are now considered to be among the world's most intelligent animals with a brain mass quotient approaching that of some apes.

  1. Brilliant photo, John! We love crows in our household, and talk to them all the time when we’re walking in the West End.

      Crows are really amazing with their different “voices”. And thank you! 🙂
