Raven flying into Gods Eye

Raven flying into Gods Eye
Taken on April 17th 2007. Click image for larger view.

I was hunting down this Common Raven (Corvus corax) with my camera and suddenly it took flight. My camera was in manual mode and was not set to take a photo with the sun in it.
I must say I’m pleased with the result as it is somewhat different. Might call this photo an accident 😉
