It is always fun to take a picture of Australian Raven. Almost impossible to guess their next movement :)
An addition to your excellent note, in some places they are being killed to keep their numbers under control, because they are stealing some endangered birds eggs and chicks.

Excellent portrait of raven. This bird was very common in Poland [of course not Australian, but European] but now it is rather rare. Very good exposure, I like detailed and shinning feathers. Very good, colorfull BG made nice contrast with main subject.

We have also several Corvus species in Turkey, but, not this one. Very impressive bird with white eyes. Sharpness, details, composition, POV and DEF very good. Well done. TFS,

Great shot with excellent detail and color in the feathers,not an easy accomplishment on a black bird.
Well done on the focus and exposure

Hi Chris, wonderful capture of this dark black coloured Australian Raven with splendid POV and DOF. TFS.

What a contrast ..the body of black and white button like eye..
I guess the crows that we see here are also part of the same family.While the Common House Crow that we see here is dismissed by many as just another bird, i think they too have such beautifulm features. The same i think is the case with the raven you present to us.
The bird looks beautiful with its plumage glistening in the bright sun falling on it.The features are taken in excellent sharpness and the focus is spot on.The environmnet in which it has been captured lends a fine contrast to the dark shining colour of the bird.
I like the PoV you have used but i might have thought of going a bit more level to the bird
...superb DoF....Very well done.
And thank you for sharing this beauty...
TFS & Cheers
