Jackdaw (Corvus monedula)

I haven't been able to get out much recently, but did manage this ground-level shot of a Jackdaw, which I like because the perspective lends the bird the feel almost of a snake, its body drifting away into the long grass.

Canon 1DS MkII, Canon 100-400mm IS USM L lens, 1/320th sec, f/5.6, 400mm at ISO 500. Distance: < 4m


  1. Remarkable photograph - you can see the intelligence in the eye.
    And they say dinosaurs are extinct!
