Ravishing Ravens of the Long-billed crow variety, by exemplary wildlife photographer, Takami at T Ibara Photo, where a picture is worth a thousand words. And then some.

Large-billed crows, in Japanese translation, are called ハシブトガラス (“hashibuto-garasu”).

    1. Pictures of nature, birds, and animals, particularly in their natural habitat, these frozen moments in time, we all like them. They help us to see life. To appreciate and respect the wonders of existence in all its variety. They are powerful. They bring us back to basics, help me understand the importance of not so much technology, not so much modernity. The need for primitivity. I’m not talking about throwing away the toaster and living in caves; there are not enough caves. 🙂 But to take a step back, relax the pace, free its associated anxieties by focusing on simpler ways that we become more a part of the planet, its life, and its abundance. Instead of taxing it to the brink of decimation. Instead of alienating ourselves by ignoring the suffering of the defenseless and vulnerable. The importance of committing to methods and technologies that don’t derail our morality, but bring us closer to what’s really important; that is life. The virtue of life and freedom. Ours, and the creatures. Pictures do that. And your work assists that aim. You do it well. Thank you.
