    that’s a very dramatic shot

      Thanks, CGP. It was one of those spur of the moment shots. And, in my mind, I can see the shot that I missed . . . just before I took it, the one on the right was shaking all his feathers and looked all messy and disheveled. Oh well.

    Now I have “Rainy Day People” running through my head constantly – Ear Worm. As always I love the Raven photos. I counted 93 at two dog teams this morning.

      I’ll work on getting the ear worm quality up in my blog titles! 🙂 I saw 40 ravens today flying in the skies over Felton today. So gorgeous. They were playing in the breeze . . . clearly enjoying the break in the rain.

    What a cool, kind of mysterious photo. I almost expected to see an old, dilapidated house behind it.

      It looks much more dramatic in the picture. It’s a small tree at the edge of the parking lot for my local market.

    Nice gray skies behind those beautiful ravens.

    I love your ravens. The silhouette is terrific. It is hard to capture nice shots on gray days.

      Thanks, Bev. It’s especially hard with the black birds . . . I really had to play with the color to get anything to show up.

    Very interesting image. Reminds of Edgar Allan Poe.

    Nice photo – I like the look of the birds on that bare branch of the tree.

    Nice eerie shot! Where’s the haunted house?

    Love the photo. I really like how they silhouette against the gray sky.

      Thanks! Take a look at this one where I played with the color and made it look REALLY eerie!

    Nice Photo of the Ravens.

    They look like they know something we don’t.

    Emily Dickenson is looking up at me here on the bed! I’m using Rich’s Christmas kindle until he comes to Florida in two weeks. 🙂 The speed of downloads is quite something, isn’t it? I downloaded What is the What by Dave Eggars- great read.

    So sometimes, Poe pops up on the screen. And thus spoke the raven. You know how I love them.

    • Liza Lee Miller 2 March, 2009 at 9:23 pm #

      I love the authors who pop up and say hello. Poe was on my Kindle when I got home and saw it for the first time. Glad you’re enjoying your Rich’s Kindle. 🙂 Enjoy!

    Nice capture Liza! I am a sucker for silhouette photos. There is just something about them, the mystery within perhaps?

    • Liza Lee Miller 2 March, 2009 at 9:58 pm #

      Glad to oblige, Larry! Ravens lend themselves to silhouette pictures.
