Sneaking by Exileden Sneaking by Exileden
Um, I don't really consider it as a good photo which I normally photograph but just accidently I caught great composition of sneaky a bird and a dog. I just wish had better equipment to catch it while hiking on sand dunes, but oh well. Who is going to carry heavy equipment walking all the way on sand in such high temperatures?

My dog kept chasing a crow, but he (or she?) didn't let himself to leave "his" territory. He was so stubborn, that circled (on flight) Arnaq to get her to loose sight of him. Then he sneakily walked to his desired spot where Arnaq kept chasing him.


Sneaky, cunning one walking away from Arnaq in silence :D


And yes I stopped uploading photos to other, my newly made account because... I forgot password and email which I registered it. Epic fail.

For some reason crows really remind me of foxes, maybe with their stereotypical characteristics.

I love Hooded Crows!
And yes, crows and ravens have certain similarities with foxes, but they have also a connection to wolves since they often follow wolf packs!

Haha, sadly the birds where I am aren't as fast or sneaky to get away from my 3 sibes.

Also, that bird to me looks like our magpie (a bird we have here in Australia) Our crows are solid black.

My dog is always being teased by magpies! They will land on his food dish and steal some pieces, and when he chases them they fly just over his head, circle the yard a few times, then land on the fence or a branch just out of reach and caw at him(and magpie caws sound like laughter). :giggle:

The crow's pose is just great. Why are your crows so cool?! It has white on it! D:
Our Minnesota crows are black and boring and loud and big.... and everywhere. o_o
