  5. La última fotografía, con el cuervo posado sobre ese viejo tronco medio descompuesto por los años y destacado sobre el fondo suave y desenfocado, es magnífica.

  6. "I was rooked," said the crow.... I don't know why that came to me, but it did. Nice detail on this rook.

  7. They are fantastic close up shots. Just look at the power of that beak.

  8. Super portraits of the Rook, Bob. I love that first shot. If it cleaned up its bill and put a shine on it, it could almost be considered handsome! - Well, maybe not!

    Best wishes to you and the family - - - Richard

  17. Hello Bob!:) Wonderful captures of this fine looking Rook. His shiny feathers are beautiful, but he has been poking his beak in muddy ground for sure, but that is nature for you!! I love his posture in your last shot.
