I got this close-up of a raven in Jasper, Alberta a while back. The lack of direct sun allowed me to get an image with little enough contrast to see the detail in his feathers. The downside was my ISO had to be quite high so there is some noise in the image.
If you enjoy my photographs please consider making a purchase. All of the proceeds from the sale will go directly to help support our friends volunteering at the Seed of Hope in South Africa which is a great organization really making a difference in the community. Every little bit makes a difference, even a small digital download for your desktop!
