Ravens Checking One Another Out – I spent 15 minutes or so photographing two Ravens near the service station at Canyon Village in Yellowstone National Park. In the beginning, there was only one raven visible. I could hear them communicating with one another and I started making photographs. When the two ravens got together it was fun to watch the interaction between them. I just imagined what they could be thinking. The ravens were very animated and seemed to be talking with one another. My captions, of course, do not reflect what they may have been saying, only my imagination overlaid onto their antics. There was a gentleman sitting within a few feet of these two, but he didn’t seem to bother them. He did make my composition more challenging.
