Thank you for stopping for a closer look. Any and all comments are welcome and appreciated.
These ravens are truly amazing birds. Please do not confuse them with crows. They look like a crow but are 5 to 6 times larger than a crow. They are like a crow on steroids. When we lived in southern Manitoba we never saw any of these. But up north where we are now they are in abundance.
Shortly after Glenda and I moved up here we had been grocery shopping, the bags of grocerys were in the back of my pick up truck. We stopped at another store for about 10 minutes. When we got back out to the truck, a raven had stolen a large package of porkchops out of the truck and tore them apart.
The Raven holds a special place in the hearts of the first nations people's cultural beliefs.

Such interesting story and shot, Jim. I like the attitude of the (big) bird (Big Brother, LOL).
Also I like the textures it's sitting on.
A great capture.
And about our 44 years, by the way: I had a dream long ago, that I was married to Karel in one of my previous lives too :D. So I don't know exact how many years THAT will be together LOL.
