When I found a dead crow in my yard of course I left it there. Yes, I’m crazy, but I knew it would be beautiful eventually. The first day I shot it, there was no frost, but the next day there was. What an amazing thing to happen for this image. I really should print it. As I shot, a few of its still living brethren flew overhead calling a raucous good morning. Crows, as a rule, are not very sentimental.
Anything useful for improvement is welcome.

Lr processed for some exposure adjustment and careful management of whites and blacks. Added clarity, texture, sharpening and cropped to a free-ratio that I’ll probably have to change to print it. Or add a border. Ps to eliminate a distraction or two.
