    I saw all these small, fast moving crows and knew that I needed to photograph them to post here.

    Very cool Mike. Man..the hummingbird is just as hard as a crow to get to sit still eh? Great job on these.

    I might have one with more...there were 10 of them that we could count. The problem was they they were getting territorial over the feeder and sword fighting each other...pretty funny actually.

    If I have time, I'll edit & post a few more.

    I just wish it has not been raining, I was kind of limited to standing in one spot...or risk getting my 20D all wet.
