Crows are territorial and they recognise people. So if you visit the same location for a while and you are nice to the crows there (I always talk to them), maybe bring them something to eat, they will remember you and become less skittish. The crows that know me often come within MFD of my 300/4. I haven't shot them in ages, but here's an oldie of a crow that became a real pal. I was sitting in the grass and he was literally at arm's length. Taken around dawn.

The pic in combination with your text is just really funny, Randy. :lol:

Going through my catalogue of images, I came across two shots of a juvenile Great Crested Grebe from many years ago that I decided to process. I followed that family the entire season. They started with three chicks but only one made it to adulthood.

I thought that the image was funny looking too, I barely remember that day but that bird doesn't seem to be enjoying himself. :)

I wish that someday I could get a grebe like either of yours, I have seen similar from afar, but "afar" might as well be my middle name. heheh
That background color on the juvenile is really something, I had some one Fall that were so gaudy that I never showed them, mine just looked tacky. :)
You don't post much, but when you do, you make up for lost time.
I just want to say again too, your Flickr is something else, all I do is mostly birds, but you do it all. :)
I just wanted to compliment you on that.

Reflections can make or break...what you have captured Levina, is super!!

I might have posted this before, but it is also one that the bird is almost a support prop for the reflections.

Randy, that is a big and generous compliment. Thank you so much for your kind words. :love:

As for the Grebes, I spent a lot of time with them and they got used to me and lost their skittishness (is that a word even?).

I love this one too. And you said it exactly right, sometimes the bird is like an extra but not the star of the image.
