Battle of the Ravens

A lucky shot of a couple of ravens battling over a tender morsel of food. These birds have to be the hardest ones to photograph in the north. The contrast between the absolute black of the ravens and the absolute white of the snow makes it almost impossible. This was the only half decent photo from a grouping of 50 and it still needed extensive Photoshop work. Still I like the action in the photo.

Whew, so its not just me that has trouble capturing them on camera. I've been trying to get a decent picture for a few years now and have yet to get anything I'd want to put up on my blog.
