LIL: Fish, a Pond, and a Very Hungry Crow

Greetings to the Hive community. Today I'm offering a collection of pictures for LIL, the LMAC Image Library. I snapped most of these photos myself, but the crow sequence was captured by my daughter when she was in Miami. She was relaxing by a swimming pool and caught sight of a crow in pursuit of a French fry. The story didn't end with the sequence shown in the post below.

After the bird collected the fry, she/he carried it to the edge of the pool, dipped it in water, and then hungrily consumed the morsel. Here, presented photographically, is the rest of the story.

All the pond pictures shown in this blog were snapped (by me) in a very exclusive area, not far from where I live. This community does not seem to welcome guests. No Parking and No Standing signs were posted everywhere. To accommodate these restrictions, my husband would stay in the car and I would pop out to take a photo. Some pictures I even took from my car window (Ducks in the Grass, for example).

Here's one picture that didn't come out very well when I used the drive-by method (note the car's side mirror, reflecting my hand, in the frame).

LMAC Collage Contest
The image library is an extension of the LMAC Collage Contest, which is currently in its 128th round. Check it out. Join in the fun. There are prizes and an interesting network of creatively inclined people. Both the contest and the library grew from @shaka's inspiration and hard work. There is also a dedicated team (@quantumg and @mballesteros) that helps him keep the community engine running smoothly.

I hope you like my pictures. I sure did have fun taking them.
