Ghost Crow

I love crows and am forever fascinated by their intelligence and persistence through all types of weather. A recent snowstorm brought a few to some bird seed spilt on the ground beneath my bird feeders. I knew that if I opened my front door they would spook and fly off. So, I took this shot through a beveled, sidelight window. The beveled edge of the glass gave up this interesting "Ghost Crow"reflection?

This image is posted as a response to Weekend Reflections, hosted by James. Please take time to visit his blog and check out the many wonderful reflection photographs.


  1. What a cool capture, Jeff! I love it! Hope you have a great weekend! Stay warm!


  2. Very nice. I love the ghost with the scattered bits in it. Glad you explained how it came about. There is no clue in the photo!

  3. Amazing. I was wondering how the crow did it, then how you did it, but it seems the beveled window did it. Wow. Even if I went out and got me a beveled window, I couldn't expect to get a shot like that.
