Photographing and capturing birds with black or very dark plumage can be very difficult but you have nailed this with great colouring and pin sharp detail throughout.

You have a very keen eye for bird shots. These are not easy to get right due to their darkness...
Good capture! GrinGrin

Great quality image, although common, Carrion Crows are very difficult to get close enough in my experience, have not tried with a hide though.

Excellent capture Bill. These really are quite big birds when seen in closeup and that beak could be used as a serious weapon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
