At the top of their food chain, Ravens are one of the most successful animals on the planet. They live on every continent except Antarctica and South America, with a range extending from the Arctic cold, to the Desert Heat of North Africa.
In the winter I watch the weather like a hawk. A reference I’d never use around a Raven. Ravens are smart, with respectable memories, and would certainly hold a grudge. Never refer to them as Crows either. It’s an insult that won’t go over well.
When I’m out photographing Ravens I lose track of everything but the moment. During and after heavy snowfall is my go-to time. The contrast of the black birds in a white environment is stunning. Without snow, a dense forest background makes it hard to tell the bird from the trees.
