The way this crow seems to be hovering in place reminds me of a Harrier Jump Jet.
An unusual photo I think.
Occasionally someone reminds me to add the camera info as a learning aid. Occasionally I remember. This was a dull, dark and grey day (if anyone needs more dull, dark and grey days just head to BC’s west coast in November). I had on a 300 f/2.8 lens which I set to f/3.5 for a tiny bit more depth of field and sharpness. The 300 at this aperture really helps isolate the main item in the photo. The Canon EOS-1D X has no problem in low light and could track the movement of the bird without difficulty. Five frames were shot in half a second (I thought the crow was coming in for a landing). The shutter speed was kept high to freeze the motion of the bird in flight. A small amount of cropping (of the float top right) helps showcase the crow.
