Sky Watch #41


LVGC0083, originally uploaded by M'roy.

As you can see, blue skies kept us company during our very short visit to Grand Canyon. This crow did not budge at all while we took photos/posed under this tree. Did not even bother to look when we were shooting him. He's probably used to all the tourists' attention.

Happy Skywatching everyone. Want more sky? Click here.

That's a fabulous shot. The crow looks so poised and nonplussed by being photographed.

The crow is nicely contrasted against the blue sky. It's like he's posing for your shot. Fabulous!

Has to be the only shot at The Grand Canyon that doesn't include a shot of The Grand Canyon. Well done.

Yes, he knows someone's taking a photo of him, and he posed very well for the camera.

How sweet of the crow to pose so perfectly for your photo. Thanks for sharing your views of that part of the globe with us all in sky watch friday.

I love that you got some different shots/views from the ones I got last November, Maria! That's what's so great about photography by different "witnesses."

Nice shot of the sky. The crow in front view makes the photo more interesting. I love the framing effect of the tree brunch. such a greeting card perfect shot!

Thanks for the visit.

Titania said...

Great picture. The blue of the sky, the pine and somebody is watching you too; probably thinking here comes my chance to be in the picture!

Linnea W said...

Your shot is so clear and the colors so rich. I'm amazed you didn't scare off that bird. They're pretty bold aren't they! Thanks for visiting my SWF.

Janie said...

Great composition with the bird, tree, leaves and sky. It all goes together so well.
I'm surprised he didn't come down to beg for a snack.

magiceye said...

soon he might start charging 'pay per click' lol
