What a magical moment!! A beautiful combination of sun and fog, punctuated by crows. Couldn't be more perfect, to capture and to witness!!

Your capture of the fog, sun, and blue sky combine to make a beautiful foil for the silhouette of the tree and crows. Lovely, lovely!

Ha ha, Katy! As I commented on my other photo, if you had seen what these critters did to the apples and pears on my trees last summer, stripping the fruit practically overnight, 'way before it was anywhere near ripe, you would say the name "a murder of crows" is appropriate. Thanks for adding your comment!

So Kathy, would this be a 'congress' of crows, or a 'murder' of crows? :) Got that from TucsonDoug!

Beautiful photo, love the soft morning light.

Thanks, Laura! I see some jealous or unbalanced person(s) have been slamming my pictures again, but it's opinions like yours that I value, not theirs.

I really like the way you caught the sunlight in the back ground trees and how it high lights the fog. This is really good photographic technique Kathy.
