To Crow or Not to Crow...


The Crows are Here... CAW! CAW! multiplied my hundreds at a time fill the air... This one crow was way up high over our neighbors yard. I tried to get a photo to crow about, but the lens was just not quite long enough.


Collages are from ONE Crow ONE Madsnapper on One Power Line and One Maple Tree in the neighbors yard.


But I did find something to crow about. I accidently made my camera do a bokeh picture. I have tried for year to do that..
I miss my DSLR... and wish I had bought another instead of the Nikon P610. It is a great camera but the speed makes me crazy, or the lack there of makes me crazy.


I AM NOT CROWING ABOUT

The Birds! They remind me of that movie. Why do you not like DST? I cannot wait for it! It is no fun getting dark at 4:30. Maybe you can trade your camera in or something.

Linda said...

I can't even!!!!
You have the best pics - no matter what!
Is it politically incorrect that I really don't like crows??

We see a lot of crows around here. They are huge! I love your flower photo. One good thing about the time change is that I can see to walk Theo later in the evening. Hope you have a good day.

First of all, LOVE the historic village you shared with us in your previous post. And I love how the antique oil painting turned out....that's awesome.

And I know just what you mean about the Nikon....I had one and got so disgusted with the delay shutter release. It's definitely not good for any action photos...by the time you snap, and the delay...the photo op is long past.

But your hibiscus is gorgeous with the lighting. And I like the crow collage [we don't see crows here unless we go further north].

As for daylight savings time, I've written my congressmen to have Texas go off DST forever. What a waste. Not to mention how it screws with my routines. lol

Ohhhh we love that ONE collage! Very nice. The crows have been way too plentiful around here since the fall. Noisy and for some reason the love my bird bath for small birds, they need a kiddie wading pool though they are so big splash all the water out
Hugs Cecilia and Madi

Clever collages. And you know I'm with you on the time-change thing... :)

The Bokeh is perfect with that hibiscus. Love it.

Love what you did with that single crow.

Pam Jackson said...

Yes they are here too....loud and they seem to want to hang around when it is pretty and I want to hang out on the deck enjoying the sounds of singing birds.....not loud mouth birds!!! I love to sit out there and watch them on the creek, they bathe and drink and splash around.

Great Crow shots. These birds are hard to photograph.

Cat Lover said...

Great crow shots Sandra! We have quite a few around our neighbourhood too.
Looking forward to the time change!

We saw a tree full of crows today and with all of them making noise it sounded like there were ducks in the tree.

Henry said...

Wow! Great photos! Keep up the awesome posts :)

I like that crow collage. The flower is quite pretty

Denise inVA said...

Love the effects on these. You do take great pictures Sandra and so creative.

Dory and the Mama said...

I love the crow collage, it looks like a bunch of broken glass filled with crows!!

I don't think I could ever get used to the "lag" of point and shoots again....

Karen said...

My son in NJ can't wait for Daylight Savings. It gets dark SO early there!

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

This weekend's time change will be nice so that I can do some after dinner walks once the weather stays warm here that is. The snow is gone, but the cold temps come and go. And crows are not a bird I enjoy seeing or hearing.

Lois said...

Nice photos. They are here too! You can't miss them, they raise such a ruckus.

Rose said...

Terre Haute is famous for its crows...you just would not believe how they used to gather there...not sure if they are still as bad.

Not crowing about the time change either!

Don't think I ever gave crows a thought before ... but this fella's feathers are so shiny and pretty!

It's taken me a while to become accustomed, but here in Arizona we don't observe DST ..... so there's no changing our clocks. I just have to remember if my SIL is 2 hours away, or 3.
