This guy was crouched down in the snow at a pullout on the Banff / Jasper highway. They have very little fear of people and will plant themselves beside you expecting a handout. As the temperature was minus 10 celsius, he had a bit of a chill and was fluffing his feathers for warmth. Enjoy.

Really like this image, adding to my Favorites. The pose of the bird is very good but the feathers captured is excellent.

I love the subject of the photo, pretty unusual, and you've captured the detail of the feathers beautifully.

Beautiful and exquisite. At first pass I gave this one a 9, I'm glad I came back to review and upped it to 10.

6 - Nice image. Wish I could see more snow/it wasn't so high key (for this Challenge). Nice capture of the bird and it's feathers. I like the frame.

Is this a raven or a crow? I can never tell the difference. Great job on the exposure.

excellent detail in the bird, on the other hand I miss detail in the background, looks as if it was removed in PP.

Cool, this is a great shot. I did comment on someone elses shot that the bright white background behind their bird offered no environment. In your shot however it is evident that there is snow and in this case it looks great.
