Cape Schanck, Victoria, Australia
Sitting on the balcony, reading a book, I looked up and noticed a crow had perched itself on the television antenna on the roof. I sprinted in, got the camera and took about 80 shots of the bird, and a few of his friends, as they came into frame and landed too.
It took me a while to work out what to do with the shots, and this is the end result of a few solid hours of post processing.
Crows have a strange effect on me, they can calm me and make me feel a bit uneasy at the same time.
