As the Crow Flies

“As the crow flies” generally carries the meaning of the most direct route, such as, “it is less than four miles to the river as the crow flies, but I have to drive ten miles to get there.”

This is the bird that you saw earlier in the image of a crow in the treetop, surveying all around it. This is what it looked like as it flew off that afternoon.

Although I have many birds that regularly visit my yard, and although crows are quite common in other areas of town, I do not see them often here, at least as compared with many other more common birds in my yard.

Seeing this bird in flight, after observing it for a somewhat extended time, was a real treat for me earlier in the week.

  1. This is a very interesting photo, especially the silhouette, background colors and tips of the wing; a great touch.

    1. Thanks, Juanita. I rarely see crows in my yard, oddly enough, but that one crow gave me two images in short order. It was a very cloudy day, which allowed me to play with the editing.
      Nice to see you again.
