Corvus coronoides

As far as I am away this is an Australian raven. Not entirely certain, but still pretty certain.

I took this photo last year and forgot about it which is a shame as I feel that this is a good photo. I’ve probably taken better, but I really like how this one turned out.

I feel as though the raven feels very still and almost awkward, though it is not. It is graceful in its moment before taking off.

This is my submission into the one hundred-and-forty-fourth Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

The theme for this one is “Taking Flight

The challenge is hosted by four people and cycles weekly:

Week 1 – Patti

Week 2 – Ann-Christine aka Leya

Week 3 – Amy

Week 4 – Tina

This week’s challenge is curated by Tina. Next week Priscilla of Scilliagrace is guest-curating.

The challenges are pretty fun and there’s a lot of room for interpretation that doesn’t get in the way of enjoyment. If you’re into photography, then I suggest participating, or at the least checking out what other people are submitting.

I hope you enjoy.

    A stilled moment … movement stilled… a unique image that most likely will never be repeated
