COMMON RAVEN, CANYONLANDS NATIONAL PARK, UTAH, MARCH 6, 2010
SMC Pentax-DA 55-300 at 300mm
1/750 sec. f8
Ravens are bold and brassy by nature, and this one held his pose on an old pinon snag as I slowly approached on foot. Not until I had crept within 20 feet did he soar away, and when I turned and returned to my car he followed and alighted just a few feet away, presumably hoping for a handout. He didn't get one.
