"Raven Soul Mates."

Mated for life, Ravens are an affectionate couple. They spend lots of time perched shoulder to shoulder, and they often perform mutual preening which reinforces their pair bond. Behind the lens. Yes, these are wild, free-ranging birds. Photographing glossy-black feathers in deep-deep shade was challenging, and I had to drop to a shutter speed slower than I really wanted. As a result, this gets a little blurry when blown up large, so I'm keeping the available print sizes on the small side.
