FEEDIN THE KIDS....

By thorn
...this is one of a pair of crows that patrol outside of my parents house,they seem to think it is their turf so to speak,this one was going around collecting any bread that had been put out for the birds,it had just nicked a gull and chased it to stop it getting any.
Used gradient and put on a linear gradient on the bg,sharpened,resized and uploaded.
All comments and advice welcome.Take care.AnnSmile
Thankyou.
