~THE BLACK CROW KNOWS~

Australia, Japan

So you want to know, so you want to know
If you want to know what the future holds
The Black Crow knows

Robyn Hitchcock, 'The Black Crow Knows'

I love the crow family, among the very smartest & most intriguing of creatures, but difficult to photograph due to their innate & entirely understandable distrust of Home sapiens. While I enjoy their malevolent image in literature & films, they’re actually extremely social, communicative, even affectionate. Most of these images are of the Torresian crow, Corvus orru, common in much of Australia - in fact, a couple of individuals feature prominently, a local female I named Frankie & another very confident bird called Zuma. More crows can be found in my BEAKS & WINGS IN BLACK & WHITE gallery.
