This brave fellow had a nest nearby and it reminded me yet again how brave wild creatures become when it is time to feed the family. I guess this applies to humans as well. My dad worked at a job that was not fulfilling for most of his life because he had a family to feed. Here’s to all the brave dads out there, whatever the species.
This is not a long lens shot, he was right there. I was lucky to get this shot. He really wanted a bit of my pie so he stayed there long enough for me to get off a quick shot, and yes I gave him a bit of pie. Models need to eat as well.

Pleasew get rules from my blog post. thank you.
Such a wonderful photo, Terry!
Thank you for those kind words. Just lately I’ve commented on a few photographer’s sites and the comment comes back “that shot was just a fluke”. As we both know there is no such think. You either have an ‘eye’ or you don’t and if you do situations like ‘Nevermore’ pop up. It wasn’t a fluke but I was in the right place at the right time and I did have a camera and a computer to do the after work.
The best photo I ever took nearly never happened.
It was back in the seventies and it was on a roll of black and white film which I did not process myself. The company I gave it to was one of those ‘holiday snaps’ type of places and to ‘save you money’ their machinery would reject any negatives that seemed ‘thin’. It was months after I got the photos back that I remembered the unusual set of circumstances that led to me taking this amazing shot. I searched through my negatives and there it was. I went into the darkroom (and I needed a few tricks to make it come out right) and there was this awesome shot. It was the first and last photograph I ever sold and I have a battered old blow up next to me as I type. All my negatives from that amazing time were lost long ago in a house move but the lesson was well taught…………. right place, right time and have a camera handy.
A wonderful photo-I am enjoying reading and looking at your work-
Thank you too for stopping by Move the Chair–I appreciate it very much-
Thank you for the kind words……… coming from from someone as talented as you, it means a lot.
Funny you find my blog (thank you for the like) so I find you, and find this on the day i’ve just posted my own “never more” — except my raven was, like the Monty Python parrot, nailed to his perch, so I should have done a better job of photographing him! I like your blog
You have a very good eye, and I’m enjoying your blog also. Thank you for the comment.
He (she?) is huge! What kind of ravens do you have down there? Is this right in Melbourne? Wow.
The bird was VERY close to me when I took this, so it looks very large. Big enough when it is that close! Never threatened me though, just wanted a bit of my pie. We live in the Hills on the edge of Melbourne, about 40 Kms outs.
