Thanks for all the comments!

Just came back from vacation.. Writing this a little late here.

When capturing this I was just lucky.. I was walking a few miles towards the levy in hopes of finding something interesting, and I saw this crow flying around.. I stopped for a few minutes just watching it swinging on a branch, the wind was very tough then, but he was just sitting there swinging back and forth..

Then he flew down to the street where 2 of his buddies were jumping around...

I was snapping along just ready for anything, thats when one of them picked up this bag laying on the street. This guy flew up with it, mocking the others.. It was nothing short of amazing.. Everything happened very fast, I was hoping that some of them would turn out ok, since I was trying this fast action hand held set at 300mm. There were more details in the shadows, I think I could have done a better editing.. But I am learning like everyone else :)

Just happy to share this with yall.. It was very cool to witness this.

Nice moment, I would have liked to see more detail in the birds, but these guys are hard to export correctly. Good job.

Wow! Great action shot. I wonder if they know its empty. Composition well done. Black birds are harder to shoot than white one - black any animal for that matter. You did a pretty good job here. Good luck in the challenge!

Difficult capture - excellent action. A little fuzzy but understandable under the circumstances.

Fun capture that creates a really strong composition within the frame. Love teh way that the focal point is the colourful object and yet I am still drawn to the birds. Would love a touch more detail in the shadows but can appreciate the image well without. 7

Way to catch the moment! Looks like you were forced to do too much cropping and sharpening to get really fine detail in the image though.

Wish it wa more focused and the background was a touch more vivid. Love the "hand off."

Technically this photo isn´t very special but it more than makes up for it by you taking it at the exact correct moment, good job!

Wow! You caught the moment perfectly, and I imagine that you didn't have many chances. Great picture, composition and it made me laugh!

I'm not fond of the high contrast of the birds wings or the soft focus. I find it to be a very distracting. I also find that the photo has a over edited look to it. Good luck in this challenge.
