Still on corvid watch, more so than ever since I now have a good photo site at a roost not too far from my house, although by definition when they are gathering to roost the light isn't optimal. I have one big lens that has the reach that I need but not the light-gathering ability, and one that is nice and fast but doesn't have the same zoom. This composite is my attempt to convey the impressions I had when something had disturbed the whole field of crows and they were circling and cawing above me for quite some time. It was a strangely unbalancing feeling looking up into the sky at the swirling black bodies hurtling past.
