mocks the passing clouds

  1. Loooove this crow story!

  2. Beautiful photo. I love rainbows no matter where they occur. You are oh so right about crows. They mock everyone.

  3. Beautiful photo, and I like that little hint of a rainbow and the dramatic cloud.

  4. so zen. a pleasure to look at it after a busy week.

  5. and then he was struck by the rainbow, and before his very eyes, high in the sky, his plumage began to turn from black into those very iridescent colors of the rainbow and with one flap of his wings, he was in another life and another place, deep within the jungle…

  6. I’ve like “Rocks with Wings” more than Shiprock since I first heard the term. This might be my favorite shot ever!!

  7. Big ship sailing across the desert does not listen to the crowsnest.

  8. you described my day perfectly!
