Images of the Ravens in Llandudno....... my favourite wildlife moment of 2012

Seeing Ravens was my highlight of 2012... to see and photo them just a few feet from the car was amazing.




I have added links to a couple of last years posts if you want to see them.
It was an amazing few minutes... and all about sharing a packet of biscuits with the Herring Gulls.

Those are great close-ups Andrew. I must have somehow missed them on their initial showing in 2012.

Ravens seem to have a problem, it can't lie down and eat. Lovely photos.

These are awesome pictures of the ravens. The only ones I have ever seen are the 7 at at the Tower of London. The wonderful macros give us so much detail. genie

i like the way all the details show up in these, like the claws in the first and the tongue inside the beak in the last. amazing to get that close.

I love watching birds while having a stay at a llandudno holiday cottage. It's a form of relaxation for me.
