POTD: The Gleaners

The Gleaners Bozeman, Montana 2012

Many of my crow photos come from watching the birds methodically working a parking lot or other area where humans have scattered food or trash, e.g. after football tail-gate parties or lunch time at McDonald’s. It’s one setting where you can count on them not moving far for a while. It’s hard to tell in this composite photo due to it’s reduced size, but some of these crows have bits of food in their mouths. The rest are moving, moving, moving; hoping to find their own morsels.]]>

  1. From a practical point of view, these composites of multiple birds is one way to make use of all the frames you’ve undoubtedly shot as you pursue this series. I like how the birds “face” first right and then left, alternating as though they are going back and forth across the parking lot. Another fine rendition!

  2. Larry, this is great! I think this could sell nicely as a poster to birders and avian science majors. Try compositing a red berry into the mough of the one 3 down, 3 left from the top right. Happy holidays.

    1. Thank’s Tim. I’ve had the same thought about adding a red berry somewhere in the photo too–likely will do that before this image goes “commercial”. Happy Holidays to you too. (I enjoyed the fog photos on your blog recently.)
