[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Common Raven (Corvus corax), also known as the Northern Raven, is a large, all-black passerine bird.
The Common Raven has coexisted with humans for thousands of years and in some areas have been so numerous that they are considered a pest. Part of its success comes from its omnivorous diet; Common Ravens are extremely versatile and opportunistic in finding sources of nutrition, feeding on carrion, insects, cereal grains, berries, fruit, small animals, and food waste.
Some notable feats of problem-solving have been observed in the species, leading to the belief that it is highly intelligent. Over the centuries, it has been the subject of mythology, folklore, art, and literature. In many indigenous cultures, including those of Scandinavia, ancient Ireland and Wales, Bhutan, the northwest coast of North America, and Siberia and northeast Asia, the Common Raven has been revered as a spiritual figure or god

Frumos exemplar si extrem de bine surprins in zbor cu detalii si culori deosebite. Luciul penajului a ajutat mult la focusare.....
Felicitari si numai bine!
