Raven - Yosemite

Raven - Yosemite

We could almost touch this raven - it seemed not to mind the presence of a gaggle of photographers.

I used a telephoto to narrow and put out of focus the otherwise easy background.

Nikon D70s ,Tamron 70-300mm Lens
1/200s f/5.0 at 210.0mm ISO 400 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

THis kind of shot just begs to ask what this bird is really thinking... as these silly humans point large black things at them. He sure isn't shy. i recall shooting a raven too but not quite this close. I was amazed at just how close I could get to him without annoying him. I'm sure this guy was looking for a "tip"! Great detail and who knew that ravens' eyes were blue! Nice one, Dave!

I love the way both the way the raven seems to have a personality and the sharpness of the detail.
